A visit to Santa Fe in March will definitely not leave you disappointed. You may think that it is a fairly quiet time of the year, but Santa Fe is never really quiet!
March 2015 is the time for the Santa Fe Japan Festival. Known as ‘Matsuri’ – the Japanese word for festival – this is an important event. When in Japan, you would find that festivals are a very important part of the culture. The Santa Fe Japanese Festival is held annually and it is designed to promote Japanese culture in New Mexico. This year the event is on March 28th and has been given ‘Cherry Blossom’ as a theme. You can find out more information on this event by checking out the official website here.
Alternatively you could spend a little time at DIY Santa Fe. The good news about this particular event is that it runs for the whole of March and focuses on the arts, specifically those that are unique to this part of the US. This gives local artists the opportunity to showcase their work with a variety of workshops and events and it attracts visitors from all over the world. 2015 will see the fifth time that this event has been held and there are workshops all over the city.
So what kind of events are available to you at DIY Santa Fe? You can take on individual painting sessions with a creativity coach and the aim is to help participants to free themselves from their own criticisms that will hold them back. Anyone can take part in this class but there are also classes that are suitable for families. You can take up watercolour painting, with classes and instruction adapted to suit your needs. You can also find out more about the art of the tinsmith by taking classes during DIY Santa Fe. The possibilities are endless – you can learn drawing, beadmaking, pottery and spinning wool, among many other options. Why not try photography or filmmaking?
DIY Santa Fe is designed for everyone – friends, families, single people. The idea of the workshops is to open people up to new experiences so you can take part in as many or as few as you wish. You need to make sure that you book the classes that you want – they fill up very quickly! The official website www.diysantafe.org has a complete list of classes and workshops that are available and details on how you can book.
