You are invited to Darla Bostick’s 10th Annual Ghost Ranch Workshop/Retreat in Abiquiu, NM  1-7 October
2017.  Includes digital photography, watercolors/acrylics, pencil, ink, incorporating text and mixed media work with
options for plein air painting and comfort of a group activity room (floor to ceiling vista views). For 7 days/6 nights you
can relax, enjoy, and create. Lodging and meals included at Ghost Ranch property. The Georgia O'Keeffe Landscape
Tour takes you where she painted from the local, magnificent area scenery. Visit the O’Keeffe studio/home on tour.  
Space is limited to 16 participants. Bring materials you love to work with (or try something new) and join us! The
workshop fee is $550. Room and board at the Ranch are not included and are their rates—which has recently been
redesigned to provide the ultimate discount for those sharing a room, so bring a friend! Unclaimed rooms will be
released 25 August. Currently there are 12 spaces left!

Come and see for yourself why Georgia O’Keeffe loved Ghost Ranch! Last year each participant received $300+ in art
merchandise in their welcome bag…and door prizes exceeded $800!

ANOTHER SCAM --
An e-mail message comes in from
someone you know saying, "Did you
get my last e-mail?"  All looks legit,
until you answer.  Then a plea for
money follows, someone is
desperately ill, and/or in another
country.  Don't fall for it - report it to
the fraud division of your server!

Check out our updated class schedule at www.columbusga.org/parks.
We have
classes for all age groups posted    . Come by Britt David and sign up or
over the phone with a credit card.

Come and find one-of-a-kind pottery and glass art from over 30 local
artists.  Mondays 9am till 8:30pm. Tuesdays 9am till 10pm, Wednesdays
10am till 5pm, Thursdays 9am till 10pm.
