Ghost Ranch Workshops
“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.”Bradley Whitford
“Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”Ralph Waldo Emerson
Follow in the footsteps of Georgia O’Keefe and walk and study in the painted desert.
Ghost Ranch is a retreat center where you live on the ranch and meals are included and delicious, which frees your mind and schedule up to make art and new friends.
Summer at Ghost Ranch is a perfect place to take a family vacation. There are many amazing classes for adults (all kinds of art, outdoor adventure, spirituality, writing etc.). While parents are in class there is youth programming for kids ages 3 and up.
Over the years my kids have: hiked canyons and mesas, made pottery and built a kiln, played games, gone kayaking and camping, and made friends that are as close as cousins. Here are my summer classes:
Becoming an ARTful Family Youth Ages 4-12 (family week): June 25- July 1
Paint the Painted Desert in Pastels (family week): June 25- July 1
Becoming an ARTful Family Youth Ages 13-18 (family week): June 25- July 1

Pastel Intensive: July 23 – July 29
If you plan to fly to one of my classes, please read this helpful and well-written article on flying with oil paints, written by Thomas Jefferson Kitts. He discusses which painting supplies you can bring on a plane and how to do so.
