Getting to Santa Fe, NM
Santa Fe Workshops is located 60 miles north of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Albuquerque International Sunport is the main airport that serves New Mexico. We suggest you rent a car or use a shuttle service from the airport. Shuttle buses make multiple roundtrips daily. Contact Groome Transportation to make a reservation at (505) 474-5696, or visit groometransportation.com.
There is also very limited service in and out of the Santa Fe airport through American Airlines and United Airlines. Roadrunner Shuttle operates private car service out of the Santa Fe airport (505) 424-3367.
It is very important to confirm your workshop status before making travel arrangements.
Historic Sunmount Campus
Our campus, nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, offers a quiet retreat from the bustle of Santa Fe, yet it is only 10 minutes from the downtown Plaza. Beautiful adobe walls, flower gardens, and shaded courtyards provide inspirational backdrops for image making. Comfortable classrooms foster an environment for sharing ideas, words, and images. Our store, digital lab, and operations offices complete the framework that supports the workshop experience.
Santa Fe is located at 7,000 feet in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. The air is dry (usually about 15-25% humidity) and the sun is strong, so remember to bring a hat, sunscreen, and chapstick. If you feel out of breath or sluggish, it’s probably the altitude. Drink plenty of water; alcohol and caffeine are dehydrating. Dehydration may also cause headaches so, again, lots of water, try ibuprofen, and pace yourself.
The Digital Lab
The Digital Lab at The Workshops has 13 workstations complete with 1 TB Apple Mac Mini M1 Chip computers, top-of-the-line monitors courtesy of NEC, and the latest software from Adobe. Epson provides us with Epson P900 printers and a wide selection of Epson papers we have available for printmaking workshops.
To enhance your learning experience in our multimedia workshops, we have H4n recorders and wireless lavalier microphone kits.
