The Art Workshop fee is $550 and there is $110 art room rental for each participant and is not included with room & board prices.


Rooms: We have 7 days/6 nights of lodging (twin beds--some rooms have queens and doubles) & includes daily meals. Ghost Ranch charges a $5/person Conservation Fee and a rental fee for our workshop area which has been added to the room rates below. Rooms on the Main Ranch Level have been requested but not guaranteed.

Early requests on room types have a better chance of availability. I reserve the best the Ranch has to offer with private bathroom for each room. (Dorm type rates are cheaper but require early reservation). Check the lodging tab for more info.

Room and Board Rates (per person for 6 nights)       

Single room is $1125  (includes conservation fee, room & meals for one) 

Shared room is $1320 (includes 2 conservaton fees, room & meals for two--or $660 each)


For camping and RV's: (These are 2016 rates) Tent sites $25/night; small RV/tent sites with electricity $30/night; RV full-hook-up sites $35/night. None include meals but meals can be arranged directly through the office with Ghost Ranch (505.685.4333)--breakfast $10, lunch $12, dinner $14. The $5 Conservation fee/person is additional. For campers, the workshop fee of $550 holds your place in the workshop. Campers should arrange their campsite preferences and meals with Ghost Ranch directly rather than through Darla. Tell the office you are in our group! Cheaper lodging is available with dorm-style baths. The rooms do not have locked doors but include meals. 


Another option is the semi-private...this is a 2-bedroom cottage with one bathroom. None are reserved in our room block but if enough notice is requested it can be done and there are two that are very convenient! Let me know if you are interested and I can check the rates and availability. 


Optional Field Trips:

Optional tours for artist/guest (Landscape Tour or O'Keeffe home/studio $40 each)


I want to reserve a seat for: ___ Georgia O’Keeffe Landscape Tour--$40

                                          ___ Georgia O’Keeffe Home/Studio Tour--$40

                                          ___ Neither


Fees Other than Room and Board:

Art Building fee for workshop participants (not non-art spouses!)--$110 each

Workshop fee--$550


Summation: For the ENTIRE package of Main Level Lodging with private bath and meals, 2 tours, Art Building fee and workshop fee for workshop participants: 

$1400 each (this is with a workshop roomate)        

$1865 for a single room, private bath, no roomate

Both tours are optional. If you don't want to do the studio tour you can hang out with Darla on a different outing at the same time.

For a couple sharing a room, with 1 workshop artist, and both doing the tours the cost together is $2140.
