Nancy Walkup An Invitation to A Journey of ART & SOUL T his past summer, a terrific group of educators, artists, and art lovers from all over the coun- try attended our Tres Culturas S choolArts/CRIZMAC seminar in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mex- ico. Together, we met incredible artists i n their homes and studios, toured Georgia O'Keeffe's house in Abiquiu, hiked to see ancient petroglyphs, had lunch in a Pueblo home, visited histori - cal sites, enjoyed museum visits, and e xperienced the contemporary Santa Fe art installation known as Meow Wolf. Next summer, Tres Culturas will be returning to Santa Fe, Abiquiu, Chi- mayo, and Taos. Join us as we explore t he artistic spirit of Northern New Mexico on July 22–28, 2018, adding some new destinations for our repeat participants. (One hardy traveler has joined us nineteen times!) The spirit of New Mexico may best be captured through the senses—the distinctive smell of wet earth during a storm, the scent of burning piñon, the incredibly turquoise sky, and the rough texture of rounded, organic forms. This spirit finds expression in a unique way of life created from the contributions of three cultures: Pueblo Indian, Hispanic, and Anglo. Tres Culturas is designed to help curious travelers explore and under- stand the diversity of New Mexico's a rtistic heritage, from ancient times to the present. Planned highlights for 2018 include tours of Georgia O'Keeffe's home in Abiquiu and Taos Pueblo in Taos; a visit to Roxanne Swentzell's Tower Gallery, and much more. Anyone is welcome to join us; you do not need to be an educator. For dates, pricing, and other details, visit . Get Published in SchoolArts !
