Estudio Corazón Residency
Ghost Ranch is excited to introduce Estudio Corazón (Studies of the Heart), a residency program for fine artists. Piloted in the fall of 2020, we are now ready to share this unique opportunity with the larger public of artists. Housed in the Casitas near the Arts Building, each resident will have individual living quarters and a studio.
We are currently booking May 16-29th, which is a half residency of 13-nights at a special early bird rate of $1750. There are still some openings for our two residencies of 26-nights in June and August, at a cost of $3750.
