The Georgia O’Keeffe Immersion: Walking, Sketching and Journal Reflections – G201111

Spend a few days immersed in the environment that inspired Georgia O’Keeffe: walk the land she loved and painted, reflect upon the quiet beauty and record your observations in a series of sketching and journaling exercises. This class will explore  a restricted area of the ranch, in sight of Georgia O’Keeffe’s Ghost Ranch home, Rancho de los Burros. Your instructor will  facilitate your experience through an exploration of the land, discussion of O’Keeffe’s life and examination of her paintings.

Taught by Karen Butts and Carol Ho with a special virtual book reading by Margaret Wood.

Due to Covid-19 limitations, lodging for this course will be on the main ranch in the Historic Cottages.

Please note that our workshop price structure packages your tuition, course materials, lodging and meals together in a single rate.

What is double occupancy and single occupancy lodging?
  • During Covid-19 periods, all lodging types will be single occupancy at no additional charge. Of course, you can share a room with a spouse, partner, family or other person that shares your full-time residence.

StandardTimes:

  • All-inclusive rates include double occupancy lodging, meaning that we will have two participants per room in most cases.If you do not specify a roommate, you will be assigned a roommate of the same gender
  • In the off-season (late October-May), participants may choose to upgrade to single occupancy lodging for an additional $50 per night. Guarantee single occupancy lodging by paying the single occupancy upgrade.
  • During our busy summer seasons, late June-July and late September-early October, participants who register alone should expect to have a roommate assigned to their room. In some limited circumstances, a single occupancy upgrade will be available at $100 per night.
What is the difference between a room with private bath, a room with semi-private or shared bath, and a room with communal/dorm bath?

Private refers to the type of bathroom, not single occupancy

  • During Covid-19, all rooms will have a private bath. Semi-private and Communal/dorm types will be assigned a bathroom for each person.
    • Private: There is a bathroom in that one room that is not shared between or with any other rooms.
    • Semi-private/shared: There is a bathroom between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two adjoining rooms.
    • Communal/dorm: There is a communal bathroom/showers in the lodging building (or in a proximate building, for some upper mesa dorm rooms), and participants will need to exit their room to reach these facilities.
