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! :)
