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


Art Workshop:  $550 for the workshop and $110 each art room fee=$660 total


Optional Field Trips: For artists and guests (please check) Prices per person

I want to reserve a seat for: ___ Georgia O’Keeffe Landscape Tour--$42.50

                                             ___ Georgia O’Keeffe Home/Studio Tour--$45

                                             ___ Neither

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


Rooms: We have 7 days/6 nights of lodging & includes daily meals with the exception of one dinner outing in Abiquiu. Ghost Ranch charges a $5/person Conservation Fee which has been added to the summation below. Rooms on the Main Ranch Level have been reserved. Early requests on alternate 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 or a 2-bedroom cabin/1 bath let Darla know ASAP. These are a bit cheaper but require early reservation. Check the lodging tab for more info. All rooms are reserved more than one year ahead of time, are released one month before the event and most likely cannot be reclaimed.


For camping and RV's: See the lodging tab to the left. Meals are not included but can be added (breakfast $10, lunch $12, dinner $14). Reservations must be made directly through the office with Ghost Ranch (505.685.4333). The $5 Conservation fee/person is additional. Payment for the workshop & art room ($660) is payable to Darla along with tours you wish to take. 


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

$1410 each (this is two artists in the workshop/retreat and sharing a room)        

$1875 for a single room, no room mate

For a couple sharing a room (1 workshop artist/one not in workshop) and both doing the tours the cost together=$2160. With no tours for either one=$1970. Both take one tour =$2075
