There are 3 factors to your cost--room and board, art fees, optional field trips.


Art Workshop:  $710 ($550 for the workshop and $160 each for art studio rental)


Rooms: Your 7 days/6 nights of lodging includes daily meals with the exception of one dinner outing in Abiquiu. A $5/person Conservation Fee has been added to the summation below. Rooms on the Main Ranch Level have been reserved. Early requests for other room types have a better chance of availability. The best rooms the Ranch has to offer with private bathroom for each room are reserved for our use. If you want a dorm type room let Darla know ASAP. These are a bit cheaper but require early reservation and are on the mesa--very inconvenient. A semi-private is two bedrooms that share a bath. To save on cost, some rooms can accommodate more than 2 people, if interested, ask for details. Check the lodging tab for more info. All rooms are reserved years in advance, are released one month before the event and most likely cannot be reclaimed. Payments are non-refundable.


Camping and RV's: Make your own arrangements directly through the Ranch. See the lodging tab to the left. Meals are not included but can be added for $15 each meal. Reservations must be made directly through the office with Ghost Ranch (505.685.4333). Payment for the workshop & art studio space ($710) is payable to Darla along with tours you wish to take. 


Golf Cart Rental: Driving on the Ranch grounds is discouraged. If you feel a golf cart would aid your navigation or if you are staying at the RV area, you may want to rent a golf cart for the week (the RV area is far from the art studio and dining hall). The golf carts must be reserved and paid for through the office (not through Darla).
