Light reveals the beauty of the world to us. The light of New Mexico is extremely special. The colors are vibrant and the wide-open skies project a luminosity that transforms the textured and curving architecture and landscape into a visually magical and wondrous place. This workshop is being offered to all fine artists who are excited to find new inspiration and experience the fun of a different culture and cuisine within our borders.

The workshop will help you discover and fine-tune your own reactions to light, your own personal vision and creative process. It is important to understand in practical terms how the behavior of light defines the nuances of form, color, space and atmosphere in all mediums.

The schedule of this workshop will emphasize time for careful study of the relationship between environment, light, architecture, and people, especially time for recognizing those elements, which may effectively lead to paintings or photographs of insight and emotional value, while always being aware of the effect that light plays in capturing the illusion of value, form, color and space.
