What you'll do

You'll come to a boutique art making space in downtown Santa Fe where all your materials are provided and you can jump right in to creativity with a guided art project. The studio is fully equipped with brushes, paint, easels, canvas, tables, lights, music and fun! Guests will create a 11 x 14 Acrylic Painting. We will start by picking out the subject that we will paint. We will all paint the same subject. I will lead a step by step demonstration. All guests will paint the same subject and be assisted through each step of the process with one-on-one help. At the end of the session guests leave with their own painting to hang at home, a souvenir of a special immersive art-experience in Santa Fe. Inspiration and up-liftment guaranteed!

Laura came out to greet me for my first “real” painting class. She happily invited me into her art-laden Adobe. Her home is eclectic and bright. She spoke of her pieces and I soon learned her styles varied from abstract to realistic. Her studio was as expected ... generously stocked. Finished and unfinished paintings gave me a timeline of the progression of a painting. It’s as tho they have a birth and metamorphosis. She took time to converse with me and answer each of my questions in depth. To my chagrin, I was her only student. One-on-one was a special treat! We choose to paint a sunset she had photographed 2 days before. She displayed the pic on a screen. I was so excited to listen and learn first-hand. I learned how to choose the pallet, about the brushes and how they and used and cared for. As you can tell, our class was modeled as per my skill-level. She too painted along with me. She guided me through the process and at the end my satisfaction level well surpassed my expectations. I have now turned into a painting monster and can’t wait to set up my own studio. At the end, she invited me to participate in two more painting events this week. It’s as though I belonged. I felt supported in her company, this allowed me to emerse myself into the experience. Her storytelling was not only informative, but necessary to create my interpretation of a beautiful Santa Fe sunset. This experience was a 10+ in my book and I urge you to make it part of your stay in Santa Fe. She models her teaching as per her students skill level, novice to experienced. She rocks as a person and artist. Hands down this is a must-do!!! Well worth signing up!!!
