Space is limited, reservations required. Please email [email protected] or call 505.946.1000 for assistance with event registration. 

Join artist Devon Burke for an exploration of objects found in the life and studio of Georgia O’Keeffe which inspired her nature-based works. Participants will have an exclusive tour of the museum focused on discussing works and items that inspired the daily work of O’Keeffe’s up close and well-studied paintings. Students will then head to the classroom for drawing exercises that will study some of these found items from observation, taking inspiration from O’Keeffe’s practice. This course will offer the application and study of introductory and intermediate drawing techniques in creating a still life work.
