Create your own original small painting and interpret your visit to Santa Fe with award-winning artist Shirley Crow. Play with techniques she uses in her studio only a few minutes from Santa Fe. Explore your creativity in an ideal setting—a contemporary house and garden specializing in grasses, and a roomy, light-filled studio looking onto the pinon-juniper landscape. Learn a special technique and explore the magic of color relationships with various methods using brushes and paints. Express the colors of New Mexico in your own work…NO ART EXPERIENCE NECESSARY AND ALL LEVELS WELCOME! The goal of the workshop is to give you a unique, fun, even joyous, art experience that lifts your spirits, expands aesthetic awareness and enhances your Santa Fe visit.
