Program Description

If you have dreamed of experiencing wide-open spaces, starry skies, mountains, mesas and red rock formations, come spend your January Term at Ghost Ranch! While you study one subject intensively you also immerse yourself in the multicultural nature and stunning landscape of this 21,000-acre working ranch. Ghost Ranch is located one and one-half hours north of Santa Fe, in a remote area of Northern New Mexico. The theme of transformation permeates all programs, touching students and guests with a profound sense of respect, perspective, and purpose.

January Term participants choose from an array of courses: B/W Landscape Photography, Painting Intensive, Intro to Silversmithing in the Southwest Tradition, Southwest Pottery, Creative Writing, Mixed Media and Abstraction, and Service Learning in the Southwest. J-Term courses are augmented by field trips to regional archeological sites, Indian pueblo villages, and museums and galleries in Santa Fe and Taos. The region has a rich history of mingled cultures—Hispanic, Anglo and Native American—evident wherever you turn, and found nowhere else in the country.
