Classes and Workshops

Thousands of people travel to Santa Fe each year in order to take our unique classes and workshops. With so many gifted artists, writers, chefs, body workers and other teachers in town, Santa Fe has become an appealing destination for inspired learning.

Make your visit fun and meaningful by getting to know the city's art, culture, history, heritage and people. If you long to explore your artistic side, there's no better place to do so. Dozens of classes in oil painting, watercolor, photography and more can unlock a hidden talent or help you take a developed skill to new heights. Take a writing workshop and express yourself through poetry, journaling and memoir writing. For artistry in the kitchen, learn to prepare delicious meals using traditional ingredients of the Southwest in a class taught by one of the city's finest chefs.

Santa Fe is also a major center for healing modalities focused on the mind, body and spirit. Relax and rejuvenate yourself with classes in yoga, Pilates and meditation or celebrate life's rites of passage through Southwestern ceremonies.

Get connected to nature with lessons in wilderness survival skills and hands-on classes in sustainable gardening and natural building techniques.

You'll be amazed by the range of Santa Fe classes and workshops. But it's not surprising--this is a place where creativity thrives.
