It takes a gifted artist to become a great teacher and those who dare to teach never cease to learn.

The final days of our 2018 SMA Tour



Roberta Lutgen's Frida Kahlo influenced interpretation (in process)


Our two last days in San Miguel went very fast: the Frida Kahlo class in the morning followed by more independent exploration of SMA during the afternoons. We all agreed that ten days is too short a period to absorb all the information, and learn about San Miguel’s colorful past. 
Many of the participants would have enjoyed more sketching which we will be doing in March 2019 when Dr. Sarah Simblet from Oxford, U.K.  will teach a sketching class on birds and plants of El Charco (March 16-24). During that week we’ll be spending the majority of the class time in El Charco del Ingenio gardens. For the cultural part we’ll explore Guanajuato, Atotonilco with Dolores Hidalgo, and the Cañada de la Virgen Archaeological Site in addition to specific tours around the heart of San Miguel de Allende.

While the Frida Kahlo class was working inside, Randy went back to El Charco and did some painting of the canyon and the old water pipe (Randy Raak, gouache) - please click to enlarge
