TAOS, NEW MEXICO WORKSHOPS, 2002
.
The house
Since 1990, I’ve been holding workshops in Taos where I rent a great house facing the mountains. We have chamisa, pinon, cottonwoods, hummingbirds, horses, cows, prairie dogs, coyotes, even bears. A stream runs behind the house. At 8,000 feet, the nights are cool.
The house, a three story, geodesic dome with a wrap-around deck, has a modern kitchen and THREE SHOWERS - a godsend for a workshop. It sleeps 11, but I take 7 people per workshop. July dates are 9-19 with the program as follows:

At the morning site, I give three hours of instruction. With a small group, I can teach all levels and all media on an individualized basis. I don’t stress style but rather formal issues and personal visions. The afternoon is for independent work. Each evening, we have critiques with wine and cheese before dinner.

August dates are 6-20. It is a modified workshop, more of a residency for advanced students. They work independently at the site. I give critiques before dinner. This meal will be provided and prepared by pairs of residents.

For diversion, Taos has fine concerts, film series and spectacular night skies. The Pueblo is a must as is the Millicent Rogers Museum’s splendid Native American art. The renovated Harwood Museum has a room devoted to Agnes Martin’s gift of seven of her paintings. During the August workshop, we do a Santa Fe day: museums, galleries, and The Plaza.

The July cost is $1350 for tuition, room, and board - except for dining out. However, our food is outstanding! The August residency is $1050 for evening critiques, room, and most of the food. Airfare is not included. I will arrange transportation to and from the Albuquerque airport. A deposit of $450 for each session reserves a place and gets you THE LIST: art supplies, clothes, etc. The balance is due by June 1.

This is my 19th workshop, the 13th in Taos. It’s my favorite form of teaching. The work is always varied with many breakthroughs. Sites are the Rio Grande Gorge, the mountains, the mesa, Abiquiu, the Harding Mine, and more. My students have been enjoyable and hard working. They range in age from mid 20s up, from professional artists to teachers to beginners with a serious commitment.

To give you some idea of me, I am sending a brief resume and a few show announcements. If you have questions, please call or e-mail.
