"Santa Fe Journal"
March 9-13, 2020
 

The basis of this 5-day workshop will be sketching and painting on location around Santa Fe. Basic drawing and quick, intuitive watercolor will be taught, and will become the heart of our Santa Fe journals. (And yes, Jane CAN teach you to draw, even if you haven't drawn since third grade.) Using the city’s Mexican, Indian and Spanish influences, we’ll draw flowers, buildings, farmers market treasures, and in Santa Fe’s museums to imbue our special journal with a sense of place. We’ll also carve original stamps, and collage in our journals. Our handmade sketchbooks will be filled to the brim with color, images and memories of our week in historic Santa Fe.
 
Location: Santa Fe, New Mexico
Instructor: Jane LaFazio, JaneLaFazio.com
Cost: $850, Materials: $30
