The Mountains around Grants NM: Hike, Paint, Draw, Inspire, Enjoy...

Ranger Jenn holds these events EVERY THIRD Sunday in the Grants, New Mexico area.

Meet at the Northwest New Mexico Visitor Center (NWNMVC), in Grants NM, 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 and let nature inspire. There can be as little or as much walking involved as you wish.

Or you can join  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, or sketch books. 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.  We are meeting at the Northwest New Mexico Visitor Center, The building itself is amazing and if weather is poor, we can sit in the huge windows and let the view inspire. We had a wonderful showcase of our collective works to celebrate our 1 year aniversary of holding this event. I would like to do that again at the 2 year anniversary in March 2013! :)

Please contact Ranger Jenn @ ([masked]) if you would like more details or directions! And... on the day of, please call Ranger Jenn at the Northwest New Mexico Visitor Center [masked])

Hey gang, We at the BLM have been offering these art walks for over a year and a half now, and to keep the mommentum going dispite logistical issues, we have switched to the Third Sunday of every month. I hope you can make it :)

    I've posted the photo I made of the front of "La Ventana Natural Arch" on Jan. 19. This Meetup was canceled but I left before the message was posted. I think I got a nice snap of it and in this version I painted it in Corel Painter 12.2. so the trip was very well worth it! Here's the link to it.

      Thanks Ranger Jenn! Yes, that is my plan and I was thinking about painting the one from the inside looking out too.

    Oh, sorry. Yes I did mean for April. Wildflower hunt sounds terrific. Really just visiting any part of the conservation area that is a bit off the beaten path is terrific. I've always like El Mal Pais, but the more I see beyond the pullouts and trails through the lava, the more interested I become in it. What is your favorite place out there? I find the rangers to be the best resources for all the REALLY good info.
