Teaching at El Charco del Ingenio

Since 2009 the instructors from Denver Botanic Gardens School of Botanical Illustration have been travelling in San Miguel de Allende, GTO, Mexico to teach one-week workshops at El Charco del Ingenio Botanical Garden. This is an important part of the collaboration between our institutes. Our activities in San Miguel are also one of the projects within the Center for Global Initiatives.
See pictures from the most recent illustration workshop by clicking here. This workshop was focusing on birds, studying bird anatomy, physical characteristics. Observing the birds in motion and then drawing the subject either at rest or in flight. The majority of the students were Spanish speaking and the instructor was Randy Raak.
