How do I get to Taos for My Class?

Taos is located in Northern New Mexico at the base of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains at the COOL altitude of 7,000 feet. Summer's here are cool and green, unlike the southern part of the state. There are 2 major airports nearby.
A car is recommended for travel, however there are daily bus shuttles from the Albuquerque airport and ride-shares with other students can often be arranged. There is also scheduled airline service into Taos.

The Taos Art Colony

There is an indefinable 'something' in the Southwest, and Taos is near its center. It surely has something to do with the shimmering quality of the Light, the vibrant mixing of Cultures and the calm vastness of Space. Nestled at the foot of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Taos is a place where the landscape bears the mark of infinity, where the movement of the earth is palpable, and where the widely diffused light invites your Soul to expand. The Vast Perspectives are filled with new Clarities.

Taos has inspired people for more than a millennium - from the Mysterious Anasazi Culture to the accomplished Pueblo Indians here today; from the artistic Spanish people to wave of seekers in modern times.

Taos currently supports a Vibrant Art Colony that we refer to as "The Left Bank of the Rio Grande" ©.

They will pick you up at the Albuquerque Airport and bring you directly to Taos, and, even directly to the Hotel. However, you DO need to make reservations ahead of time as it is not a random-pick-up type of thing like a city bus.
It is scheduled for each specific passenger at specific times, so, you can book ahead and coordinate with your flight arrival time.
