?The Fechin Art Workshop for me was in many ways a life changing experience. Being surrounded by such intelligent, giving instructors inspired me to be a better painter and person. ?I also learned from the group with whom I painted who did not hesitate to share their love for painting and their ?tried and true? tricks of the trade? ?

In May 2011, the Fechin Art Workshops were reinstated in Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico at the Hotel St. Bernard.? This successful program which featured top artists from across the United States was established for over 21 years. It was located at the Donner Ranch in a small community north of Taos and concluded in 2006.? The founders were direct descendants of Nicolai Fechin.

We look forward to seeing you in the fall!
