RE: Tres Culturas: Summer Santa Fe Seminar Opportunity

Hi, Robin. I'm glad you emailed me because I haven't had a moment to
call you. I am an art teacher, having taught art to all grades from
kindergarten to college, now teaching elementary. I have led the seminar
in Santa Fe for about 8 years now, I think. I can give you a certificate
for participation and it is tax deductible for educators, though you
don't need to be a teacher to go.

We are very lucky to get to go to Georgi'a Abiquiu house as it is hard
to get reservations (they only let 12 people in at a time) and getting
to work with the pueblo potters is another opportunity not many people
have. We'll also have some other hands-on activities and museum and
other site visits, like the sanctuary church in Chimayo. Spouses,
partners, friends, and family can come. I think they can pay a lower
rate (just for room and board) if they do not participate. I can only
accept 15 people, so please sign up soon if you decide you want to go.
Ghost Ranch doesn't have it posted on their web site yet, but you can
talk to Sue at 505-982-8539 or, ext 23 if you need
more details. Hope you can join us!

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

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!
