Summer workshop in conjunction with the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market.

SchoolArts/CRIZMAC Folk Arts in Santa Fe
Please join SchoolArts editor Nancy Walkup and CRIZMAC president Stevie Mack for an extraordinary joint workshop opportunity, July 6-12, 2011, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This year SchoolArts is proud to collaborate with CRIZMAC Art and Cultural Education Materials for the folk art workshop, held in conjunction with the 8th annual International Folk Art Market. Participate in hands-on workshops, learn directly from artists and other speakers, visit museums, and experience two days at the International Folk Art Market on Museum Hill.
International Folk Art Market
The largest event of its kind in the world, the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market provides an unparalleled chance to collect cultural treasures, meet the artists who created them, and have a direct and even profound impact on the lives of not only the artists but also their communities around the world. For the 2010 event, more than 170 master folk artists from 52 countries were selected from nearly 400 applicants. Artist sales totaled over $2 million (90% of which goes home with the artists), and attendance was estimated to be nearly 25,000. For an art teacher, the market is absolute heaven! You can meet the artists and photograph and purchase their work.
Practical Considerations
The cost of the workshop will be $1495.00. This includes six nights (double occupancy) at the beautiful Inn of the Governors (single supplement available for $700.00), a full breakfast daily, two dinners, workshop materials, entrance fees to museums, and two days admission to the International Folk Art Market. Participants are responsible for travel to and from Santa Fe (there is a shuttle and train available from Albuquerque). Earlier participants in SchoolArts Santa Fe workshops may want to consider returning, as much of the content will be new.
SchoolArts is happy to partner with CRIZMAC, a company that has a long and proud history of offering unique educational tours for the discriminating traveler. You can be assured of a well-organized, high quality experience in Santa Fe, led by Nancy and Stevie and Bill Yarborough and Kitty Williams. Participants are eligible for graduate credit and will receive certificates for professional development credit.
To register and place a deposit, or if you have questions about the workshop, please visit or contact Kitty Williams at CRIZMAC at 1-800-913-8555 or 520-323-8555 or by email at Don't wait! Places go very quickly! 
And, if you are wondering, we are going to Venice next summer, too! We're also waiting for confirmation to repeat Pueblo Art and Culture in Santa Fe.
