At XO from Arizona, we take pride in showcasing the diverse skills and crafts of our local artisans, chefs and experts through a variety of engaging classes and workshops. Whether you’re a visitor wanting to dive deep into the local culture or a resident looking to explore new hobbies, our carefully curated experiences are designed to enrich, educate and inspire.

Culinary Delights: Cooking with Local Chefs

Food is the gateway to a region’s soul, and Arizona’s culinary scene is as diverse as its landscape. Participate in cooking classes where local chefs teach you how to create dishes that are both traditional and innovative. Imagine kneading dough for blue corn muffins or simmering a pot of authentic Southwestern chili. Each class is an opportunity to learn about the local ingredients and cooking techniques that make Arizona’s cuisine uniquely delicious.

Artistic Expression: Pottery, Painting & Photography Workshops

Arizona’s artistic heritage, particularly from Native American and Southwestern traditions, offers a unique opportunity for creative expression. Join a pottery class to learn ancient coil techniques handed down through generations, or take a brush to canvas as you capture the breathtaking hues of an Arizona sunset from the rim of the Grand Canyon. Or, take a photography workshop in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, learning how to capture the stark beauty of the landscape and its inhabitants under the guidance of expert local photographers. These workshops not only provide you with a hands-on creative outlet but also deepen your appreciation for the state’s artistic traditions.

Outdoor Adventures: Yoga & More in Stunning Settings

For those who find their zen in nature, there’s no better place than Arizona. Participate in an outdoor yoga class in the mystical red rocks of Sedona, where the stunning landscape provides a powerful backdrop for meditation and rejuvenation. Learn to meditate in nature, or relax and listen to the singing bowls. Classes can be enjoyed in person or online. 

Cultural Immersion: Heritage and Craftsmanship

Dive into Arizona’s rich cultural tapestry with workshops that explore the state’s history and heritage. From Navajo weaving classes to Mexican-American mural painting, these experiences allow you to understand and participate in the cultural narratives that have shaped the region. Meet the people who keep these traditions alive and take home not just a work of art, but a piece of Arizona’s enduring culture.

Fitness and Wellbeing: From Horseback Riding to Trail Hiking

Embrace Arizona’s outdoor spirit with activities designed to keep you fit while exploring the scenic beauty of the state. Horseback riding workshops through the desert, guided hiking tours in the national parks, under the vast Arizona sky can be perfect for those looking to combine fitness with pleasure.

At XO from Arizona, our classes and workshops are more than just activities; they are gateways to understanding and experiencing the essence of Arizona. Each session is thoughtfully designed to ensure you leave with new skills, deeper knowledge, and a greater appreciation of this spectacular state.
