RE: Tres Culturas: Summer Santa Fe Seminar Opportunity

Hi Nancy, I had called you last night about this workshop. It sounds
absolutely fantastic. I am an art coordinator for a school district in
Antioch,Il. and I do a huge unit on Georgia O'keefe. I had always wanted to
go to Santa Fe. Actually my son is not too far away and goes to school in
Durango, Colorado. Anyway, do we get any kind of credit for this? How many
applicants do you accept and can spouses come? Are you also an art
educator? Please fil me in, Robin

Subject: Tres Culturas: Summer Santa Fe Seminar Opportunity

Tres Culturas: The Art and Culture of New Mexico will again be offered by me
this coming summer at Ghost Ranch in Santa Fe (formerly called Plaza
Resolana). This seminar, held from July 25-30, is for anyone interested in
seeing below the surface of the art and culture of Santa Fe and northern New
Mexico. The seminar costs $590.00 and includes room, most meals, materials,
museum and other admissions, and travel during the seminar. Participants are
responsible for travel to and from Santa Fe.
Activities planned for this summer so far include a visit to Georgia
O'Keeffe's house in Abiquiu (very difficult to get into!), making pottery
with two highly respected women potters from San Ildefonso Pueblo (includes
a visit to the Pueblo to fire the clay pieces you make - a real honor), a
behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum of International Folk Art, visits to
the annual Spanish Market and the best flea market I have ever seen in the
U.S., and much more. Ghost Ranch in Santa Fe is only a few blocks from the
plaza, so it is very convenient. We will also be there at the height of the
summer season, when the opera and chamber music festivals offer other
cultural opportunities.
You may contact Ghost Ranch in Santa Fe for further information at <> . They also have a campus
called Ghost Ranch, but it is north of Abiquiu. Or you can ask me if you
have any questions. New Mexico is the only place that I have returned to
year after year and I continue to discover new treasures and experiences
there. I hope you will join us!
