There are many places in and around Sedona suitable for painting, from Schnebly Hill to Red Rock Crossing. We will choose one or more when we are closer to the date and have a firmer idea of headcount, as some locations are more generously proportioned. We may choose to paint in more than one location. Red rock vistas, pines, and sometimes streams/water are all possible views.

Founded in 1876, Jerome was once the fourth largest city in the Arizona Territory. The population peaked at 15,000 in the 1920’s. The Depression of the 1930’s slowed the mining operation and the claim went to Phelps Dodge, who holds the claim today. World War II brought increased demand for copper, but after the war, demand slowed. Dependent on the copper market, Phelps Dodge Mine closed in 1953. The remaining 50 to 100 hardy souls promoted the town as a historic ghost town. In 1967 Jerome was designated a National Historic District by the federal government. Today Jerome is a thriving tourist and artist community with a population of about 450.
