Creative expression is a way to reconnect with ourselves and then with others. To encourage that community, Santa Fe Workshops has launched Creativity Continues, a collective way to develop our creative voices. These events are free and open to the public.

Event Spotlight:


Instructor Image Presentations — Summer 2022

Event Date: July 4, 2022

SFW Instructor Image Presentations Start July 4

Santa Fe Workshops starts its 32nd summer season on Monday morning, July 4th. We are excited to renew our in-person workshops.

After a two-year hiatus, our evening instructor image presentations are back and open to the public — free of charge. It’s our continued gift to the Santa Fe Community.

Join us Monday evenings at 8pm in the MEA Auditorium on our campus at 50 Mt. Carmel Road. This beautiful building used to be the IHM Chapel, but has been renamed by the new owners of the property, the wonderful team at Modern Elder Academy.

Here is the upcoming line-up of instructor image presentations:

Monday, July 4 – Keith Carter, Jennifer Spelman, and Arien Chang

Monday, July 11 – Rania Matar, Reid Callanan, and Cira Crowell

Monday, July 18 – Joe McNally and Eddie Soloway

Monday, July 25 – Susan Burnstine, Nevada Wier, and R. Mac Holbert

Monday, August 1 – Nick Merrick and Maggie Taylor

Monday, August 8 – Michael Rubin, Kathleen Clemons, Laurie Klein, and Shelley Vandegrift

Special Notes:
Guests must be “fully vaccinated” and prepared to submit proof of vaccination. Masks are optional.
The listed order of presenters is not necessarily their order of appearance on Monday evening.
