Express your creative spirit with al fresco art classes


The Experience

Allow your intuition to guide you as you express your creative spirit, learning techniques such as sensorial painting and Expressive Impressionism. Go further into the painting process by learn how to process dirt and sand into fine art quality "Earth pigments" and how to transform those pigments into watercolors during a full moon, eclipse or solstice painting class.

  • 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 local artist Lisa Flynn here at Bishop’s Lodge Resort where you will chat about your interests and possibilities for painting. Lisa will then choose an appropriate, inspiring and scenic spot in the heart of Santa Fe where she 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.
