Workshop at San Miguel de Allende

I'll be teaching a week-long workshop at the UNESCO World Heritage site of San Miguel de Allende in the heart of Mexico.  This colonial jewel is located at 6,200 feet and the weather during August is mild, 50 in the early mornings to 80 in the afternoon.  It was voted by readers of Travel and Leisure as the World's best city in 2017 — beating out major travel destinations like Florence and Capetown. Conde'Nast includes it in the top twenty every year. The accolades continue to pour in year after year for this romantic and historically beautiful city.  It is a painter's delight with charming streets, stunning architecture, and vibrant color.

I have traveled to San Miguel numerous times during the past thirty years to paint.  This workshop will not only increase your knowledge and skill as a painter, it will broaden your love and understanding of our beautiful world.  Join me for this special event!
