July 29- August 5, 2018

St. John’s College
Santa Fe, New Mexico

Situated in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Glen Workshop is equal parts creative workshop, arts festival, and spiritual retreat. The Glen’s arresting natural environment is contrasted by its casual and inviting crowd of artists, writers, musicians, art appreciators, and spiritual wayfarers of all stripes.


Chaplain: Lauren Winner

Like Image itself, the Glen is an ecumenical Christian enterprise that seeks to balance inclusiveness with a clear Christian identity. Since we are human, we will always fail at this balancing act, but our efforts should be sincere and sensitive. We hope the combination of prayer-filled music with thoughtful reflection will create a worship experience that is rich and welcoming.

This year we’re excited to offer one full scholarship for every class! We’re doubling our support of talented artists who wouldn’t otherwise be able to come to The Glen.

We have a new scholarship application process which allows you to apply specifically for each class, by submitting creative work and a personal statement. Scholarship students will cover their own travel expenses, and we’ll take care of the rest – including their stay in a “triple” room shared with two other students. Scholarship recipients will also serve as the assistant for their class. You’ll find a link to the application under each course description. Applications are due March 31, and we will announce scholarship recipients on May 1.

Workshops, Seminars, and the Schedule

When you register, you’ll choose from among ten workshop and seminar experiences led by acclaimed artists. Workshops and seminars gather each morning during the Glen. During the afternoons and evenings, the Glen faculty offer a smorgasbord of readings, lectures, art presentations, screenings, and concerts for all. Amid these riches, there are also opportunities to share your work at open mics, converse and laugh over good food and drink, seek contemplation and hike the beautiful wilderness, and explore the rich culture of the American Southwest.

Learn about workshops, seminars, and the daily schedule here.
