Vista Verde Retreat
Carson, NM 87517
25 miles outside of Taos

Vista Verde retreat is located in Carson, NM near Taos. It consists of several buildings and casitas including a main house and a beautiful studio. There are 32 acres with two hiking trails to provide plenty of inspiration for plein air work.

We will arrive Sunday 10/16 anytime after 3 and leave Saturday 10/22 before noon. The price of $1100 includes 5 days of class, lodging and most of your meals for the week.

Sunday night after dinner there is an optional activity of making your own hand bound sketchbook. Laura Easterling will bring everything we need to make a simple watercolor sketchbook. We will spend time during the week transforming these into wonderful travel journals.

The rooms in the main house or the casitas sleep two to three people and share bathrooms. There are two additional showers in the studio if needed. Class size will be limited to 12 students giving everyone plenty of individual instruction and attention.

Monday through Thursday will be full days of painting both plein air and in the studio along with exploring and taking photos for future works. After painting Friday morning, we will take a day trip to Taos to explore the galleries, the pueblo or the charming shops.

Dinner Friday night will be a free evening, in Taos, at a restaurant of your choice (student responsible for cost.)
