NEW and Exciting! After over a year and a half, we are moving the art walks to the 3rd Sunday of the Month. This will hopefully accomidate all our artists and friends and help keep our schedules stress free! Meet at the Northwest New Mexico Visitor Center at 9:00 am. Then we will caravan to a different place within the National Conservation Area each Sunday, where all artistic minded folks can set up their easels, pull out a sketch book, or a camera and let nature inspire. There can be as little or as much walking involved as you wish. There might be artistic inspiration right in the parking area. Or you can join Ranger Jenn on a short walk for a stunning view. Total roundtrip milage each Sunday should not be more than about 1 and 1/2 miles. It's more about being outside creating art, than about hard core hiking.
Bring your own art supplies: paint, canvas, pencils, cameras, sketch books or what have you. We plan to finish by noon or 1 depending on weather and the feelings of the group. Artists are encouraged to linger if they wish.
Dress for changing weather, layered clothing, closed toe shoes, hat, sunscreen, water, and snacks.
Please contact me [masked]) if you would like more details. Or on the day of the walk, you can call The Northwest New Mexico Visitor Center at 505- 876-2783. Hope you can join us! :)
