Sketch Your Day

In Santa Fe

Friday through Friday, 

September 13 - 20, 2019

Limited: 3-4 Students


Women Only Please - $1500 includes lodging, two dinners, all required art supplies including a premium sketchbook, and all workshop and field trip transportation. You just have to get yourself to Santa Fe.

(A payment plan in thirds is available in the Shopping Cart).


This is one of those life experiences you will never forget!


ONE - You will spend a week living in a beautiful Santa Fe style home (Casa Artista) with your own private room and two beginning sketcher roommates. All workshop sessions will also take place at the house. You will get to know each other and your instructor at a supper party the first night. The four of you will probably become sketching buddies for life.

TWO - By the end of the first day, you will be able to draw things that look like what they are (Santa Fe type things).

THREE - You will get to know the artist paradise city of Santa Fe, NM, through the eyes of an artist/gallery owner who has lived an worked in this amazing place for 25 years. We will alternate our time between learning, exploring, and sketching with plenty of time for all three.

FOUR - You will learn the basics of using watercolor in a sketchbook.

FIVE - You will Sketch Your Days to create a beautiful Travel Sketchbook that you will treasure forever. Your instructor was one of the first people to offer workshops in sketch booking, and has been offering Santa Fe Sketching Retreats for 15 years.

SIX - You do not need any art supplies. Everything will be provided for you. You may bring some favorite supplies with you if desired, but there are no required supplies. 

SEVEN - You will be offered the opportunity, if you desire, to stay over Fri and Sat night after the end of the retreat for a nominal rate. This would give you time to explore more of Santa Fe on your own.
