Ghost Ranch Jan Term experience is unlike many other options. With diverse curriculum ranging from Pottermaking and Silversmithing to Outdoor Adventure and O’Keefe, Ghost Ranch is a culturally immersive experience parallel to international adventure. Students select an area of interest and immerse themselves in that discipline for a full 3 weeks taught by experts in the field. Classes include offerings such as: Silversmithing, Micaceous Potterymaking, Photography, Outdoor Adventures, Georgia O’Keefe, and Rocks, Ruins, and Dinosaur Bones for Explorers. Students have weekend trips to local hot springs and join in a cultural honoring day including baking bread in a horno (Indian adobe oven) , Native American and Spanish dance and music, and traditional foods from these cultures. Yoga, a walking history tour, hiking and horseback riding are all options. Students participate in decision making and can even participate in a talent show or coffee house. This is the perfect opportunity to explore the rich cultural heritage of northern New Mexico while learning something completely new. Who knows, you might follow in the footsteps of George O’Keefe who called this area home. The locale is the home for many movies and truly represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to fully savor a western paradise for three full weeks.
