Folk Art Traditions and Beyond
The best folk art from around the world, Georgia O’Keeffe’s museum and home, green chiles and blue cornbread – what else could anyone ask for in art teacher heaven?
Join SchoolArts editor Nancy Walkup in Santa Fe, New Mexico, July 10-16, 2007 for Folk Art Traditions and Beyond. This summer seminar will focus on the Folk Art Festival at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, with an additional emphasis on Georgia O'Keeffe and her life and art in New Mexico.

Meet the artists, appreciate the crafts, view demonstrations and enjoy the resonating sights and sounds of world cultures represented in folk art, music, dance, song, fashion and cuisine.
Spend time in the heart of Georgia O’Keeffe country: visit her home, enjoy the landscapes she painted in the place she loved, explored, painted, and lived in for over 50 years.
