Watercolor Sketching: Off the Ranch – G201029

Learn to sketch and paint in a small journal while traveling to small New Mexican towns. You will have specific daily assignments which build day by day so by the end of the week with a full day in Taos, you will have learned enough to go out on your own. This class is for anyone who wants to record travel experiences in a personal way. It uses minimal materials which can be stored in a big baggie and put in a purse, tote bag, or day pack. Instead of taking 1000 pictures on a digital camera, you’ll learn to create a memorable painting in sometimes only fifteen minutes! I provide xeroxed handouts on the history of the various places we visit which helps you understand where you are and what you’re painting. All places we visit have an artistic culture which adds to your painting experience. Camp chairs are provided for those people who don’t have their own art travel stools. Supplies can be purchased online at Dick Blick, Jerry’s Artarama, Utrecht, Cheap Joe’s, and ASW. Locally, Artisan’s on Cerrillos Rd. in Santa Fe is a big art supply store.
Please note that our workshop price structure packages your tuition, course materials, lodging and meals together in a single rate.

What day/time does the workshop start and end?

 Workshops always begin with check-in at 3:00 p.m. and a ranch orientation in the evening on the first date listed for the course and end at 10:00 a.m. with checkout on the last date listed..

What is double occupancy and single occupancy lodging?
  • 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
    • 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 in between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two 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.
