Art-Away : Santa Fe

includes housing, admission fees, meals, and transportation – payment plans and reduced tuition available if needed.

Art-Away trips are all about creativity, friendship and new experiences! This summer’s trip focuses on expressive drawing, painting and mixed media. We will spend time each day creating art in our home studio. For inspiration we will visit select galleries and museums in Santa Fe.  

My goal for every student is that they

  • see inspiring and relevant art, both contemporary and traditional  
  • explore their own creative process in response to what they see
  • understand how art grows out of individual experiences
  • express their unique voice through their art in a way that connects them to others

Students use sketchbooks, photography, even sound recordings to find direct and personal connections to what they see and experience throughout the week. They build on these impressions through the art they make each day.  We are staying in an airbnb with studio space both indoors and out.  When we are not making or looking at art, we enjoy delicious home cooked meals, play games, watch movies and enjoy each other’s company.

Limited to 6 students

thank you!
Traveling with Page allows students to be artists in the world of art that can only serve to inspire them to go further, to use their talents to seek that place they can call their own. Thank you, Page!


I can’t recommend this program enough! Our hearts are filled with gratitude for Page.


As someone who is trying to figure out their future after high school, spending time in an art school or with people who work every day in art for their career was really interesting and helped me gain a new perspective on how art can impact me and my life.


Page is an artist, teacher and above all, someone who is genuinely passionate about sharing her brilliance with our community’s youth. This kind of rare combination is an amazing gift to our community and not to be missed!


Verified Google Review: I can't say enough about the engaging hands-on instruction and mentoring my daughter has received. We are absolutely thrilled watching her artistic abilities blossom and seeing her grow confidant as an artist and a person.

Verified Google Review: Page does more than teach art; she teaches her students how to see the world like artists. Through this lens, anything is possible.
