    Hello Friends,

    The tradition continues!!! The annual Fall Workshop has become a tremendous success. I wish to invite you to participate in this great plein air painting workshop. I will again teach my 3 day Plein Air workshop in the mountains outside of Taos NM, September 21-23, 2021.

    This workshop will take place in the heart of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains just 19 miles south of Taos. The workshop is for all skill levels from beginner to professional. We work outside all week.

    I will do demos to show you how to get started and then we will all get going. I’ll focus individually on helping you improve from whatever skill level you are currently at to the next level. We will touch on all aspects of painting outside: from choosing subject matter, composition, mixing colors, to seeing your subject and laying the paint down.

    All you will need to bring is a great attitude, a desire to learn to paint from nature and your supplies, of course (I’ll send a materials list to all those attending).

    September is the most beautiful time of year in northern New Mexico, with the turning of the Aspen and Cottonwood trees, crisp mountain mornings, perfect blue skies, mountain trout streams and endless subject matter.

    The cost of the workshop is $450 for 3 days with a $150 deposit to hold your space. There is lodging available in the area or take the 30 minute drive from Taos each day.

    Registration now open.

    Dates: Sept 21-23, 2021

    Price: $450 (Deposit: $150) Last day to cancel: August 21, 2021. Deposits cannot be returned after this date.

    For Immediate Release

    Open Studio and Gallery Re-opening

    Albuquerque, April 28, 2021:  Starting May 1st Carla Forrest Fine Art Studio & Gallery will host open studio on Fridays and Saturdays from 1 to 4 pm and Second Sundays noon to 4 pm. Private studio visits and lessons can be arranged by appointment. Studio visitors can enter a raffle to win an original oil painting! A portion of artwork sales will be donated to the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, a nonprofit dedicated to the protection, restoration, and continued enjoyment of New Mexico's wildlands and wilderness areas.

    Workshops and Instruction

    Carla is planning an advanced oil painting workshop focusing on impasto techniques, hopefully to be held this summer, as well as mentor paint-alongs and artists' ateliers covering targeted topics, such as "The Art of the Commission". Currently she is looking for a venue since several locations are no longer available. The next atelier will be held on Saturday May 29, 9 am to Noon. This 3-hour paint-along in oil, acrylic, or gouache will take a collaborative approach in discovering one’s artistic voice. Proteges will follow Carla’s demonstration of painting an outdoor scene or still life set-up for a few steps at a time. She will provide individual mentorship to encourage your artistic growth. Attendees are responsible for bringing their own artist materials and refreshments. Sessions meet at her studio in Old Town Albuquerque, unless other local arrangements are made, compliant with New Mexico health orders. Additional sessions for up to 6 people will be scheduled in 2021 on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday mornings either outdoors or indoors. Contact Carla at if you are interested or visit her website for more information..

    Nationally recognized for her contemporary paintings with vibrant color, Carla studied art and design at State University of New York and Rochester Institute of Technology, and currently is represented by Weyrich Gallery in Albuquerque’s Northeast Heights.
