|Board bus at 1:30 PM and travel downtown for a field trip to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Nedra Matteucci/Fenn Gallery and the Gerald Peters Gallery.|
The O'Keeffe Museum features primarily works of Georgia O'Keeffe, but also offers works of her friends and other artists in special exhibits.
The Nedra Matteucci/Fenn Gallery is a small, elegant gallery, offering works of many artists. It has a charming outdoor sculpture garden with some remarkable works offered there...many by internationally known sculpture Glenna Goodacre.
The Peters Gallery is a newer, large gallery featuring works by many contemporary artists, but also those from the past, and it often has a special exhibit of works by very well-known artists such as Pablo Picasso and others.
You will be given a pass that you'll use during the week to the state museums.
While downtown, you may choose to visit the New Mexico Museum of Art and Palace of the Governors Museum, which are part of the state museum system, after our scheduled gallery and O'Keeffe Museum visits or you might wish to roam around the Plaza area for awhile - your choice!
At 4:15 PM, you'll take a short walk from the Plaza to the Santa Fe School of Cooking for a demonstration class on the preparations of tradititional northern New Mexican foods.
You'll learn all about the different kinds of chili used in local cooking, how to prepare corn and flour tortillas and several salsas and sauces as well.
You'll receive instructions as how to make some dishes that are among the most often prepared in traditional northern New Mexican kitchens.
There is a great shop associated with the cooking school that offers all of the spices you'll learn about, lots of great utensils and southwestern kitchen ware.
