For 7 days/6 nights you can relax, enjoy, and create. Lodging and meals included at Ghost Ranch property. The Georgia O'Keeffe Landscape Tour takes you where she painted from the local, magnificent area scenery. Visit the O’Keeffe studio/home on tour.  Space is limited to 16 participants. Bring materials you love to work with (or try something new) and join us! The workshop fee is $550. Room and board at the Ranch are not included and are their rates—which has recently been redesigned to provide the ultimate discount for those sharing a room, so bring a friend! Unclaimed rooms will be released 25 August. Currently there are 12 spaces left!

Come and see for yourself why Georgia O’Keeffe loved Ghost Ranch! Last year each participant received $300+ in art merchandise in their welcome bag…and door prizes exceeded $800!
