This workshop will engage your creative potential and develop your personal vision through outdoor work, thoughtful discussions, and critiques. Emphasis will be placed on supportive individual attention. San Miguel de Allende, Mexico’s international art center, is known for its cobblestone streets, Spanish colonial architecture and idyllic beauty nestled in the cool central highlands. Rated “the best city in the world” by Travel + Leisure magazine (2017), San Miguel de Allende dates back to the 16th century, is rich with color, and breathes inspiration to visitors. We will visit the “Sistine Chapel of America” (el Santuario de Jesús Nazareno de Atotonilco); the historical downtown area, Guanajuato; and La Parroquia San Miguel Arcángel, the 17th century neo-Gothic cathedral – and the most photographed church in Mexico.
