The Personal World of Nature – a Sketching Class is part art, part reflection, part nature study, and a little visit to Chimney Rock National Monument – all rolled into one!

Guests will start at the herradura at the head of the Mesa Village Trail. After becoming oriented, guests walk down to the Great Kiva to sit on blankets or chairs we bring.  Our goal is to become centered with the site and focus in on a specific item of nature.  Using sketchbooks and drawing materials provided, we will examine the item of nature selected and watch how it magically appears on a page in our sketchbook.  Afterwards, there will be a sharing with each other of what we have learned.  No art talent is required, just a desire to be open to suggestions and willing to try a hand at self-expression.

Check-in time is 4:00 – 4:15 pm.  Program starts at 4:15pm and ends at 6:00 PM.  To make reservations for either of these special programs, contact the CRIA office directly: 970-731-7133 or  Reservations for the Perseids Viewing must be made by 2:00 PM on Tuesday, August 10th.  Reservations for the Sketching class must be made by 2:00pm two days before the class.

Tickets are $16 for ages 13 and up, $8 for ages 5- 12, under 5 free.
