Express your creative spirit with art classes


The Experience

Allow your intuition to guide you as you express your creative spirit, learning new techniques and working with various mediums.

  • Choose from several techniques and classes
  • Paint from the Bishop's Lodge stables
  • Learn techniques from local artists who are inspired by nature

Al Fresco Art Experience

Meet a local artist here at Bishop’s Lodge Resort where you will chat about your interests and possibilities for painting. They will then choose an appropriate, inspiring and scenic spot in the heart of Santa Fe where they will be your guide and creative mentor as you experience the sights and sounds while painting on location or “en Plein air” with watercolors. This is a great experience for artists of all levels; even if you don't consider yourself an artist you'll walk away feeling fulfilled and with a renewed appreciation for your surroundings.
