ART AND AUTHENTIC ADVENTURE BLEND DURING WORKSHOP WEEKS

The Elkhorn Ranch Workshop and Events Program invites talented people into the ranch community to inspire, teach and entertain ~ an experiential travel addition to ranch life. The workshop leader(s) or Artist(s) in Residence participates in daily life, alongside our guests ~ dining in the Long House and sharing time outdoors on the trail. Their presence integrates the arts or science into Elkhorn’s unique blend of camaraderie, wilderness adventure horseback riding or hiking, and Sonoran desert relaxation.

Workshops are designed to include more deliberate interactive teaching that progresses through the week. Artist(s) in Resident will share their talent with guests throughout the week and provides at least two formal programs. For example, a painter sets up a studio spot in a public place on the ranch and provides a slide show and drawing lesson. A musician plays informally on the patio or by the fire in the Long House and provides an educational talk or lesson and an intimate concert event only for ranch guests. A scientist shares insight during rides or hikes and provides late afternoon or after supper educational programs.
