Encaustic Collagraph Printmaking Retreat in Guanajuato, Mexico with Elise Wagner
January 5, 2023 - January 13, 2023$1900
January 5-13, 2023
Join us on the open-air rooftop studio at Alma del Sol in beautiful Guanajuato for a most memorable creative and cultural learning experience.
This fifth year of the Guanajuato Printmaking retreat has been extended 2 extra days allowing for students to continue creating with an open studio day.
Make the picturesque Spanish Colonial hill town of Guanajuato and birthplace of Diego Rivera your destination for creating and exploring next Winter! Guanajuato was founded in 1559 due to the region’s rich silver and gold deposits. Opulent colonial buildings, stunning tree-filled plazas and brightly colored houses are crammed onto the steep slopes of a ravine.
This birthplace of Diego Rivera has excellent museums, a beautiful theater and restaurants and markets punctuate it’s lively cobblestone streets. The city’s ‘main’ roads twist around the hillsides and plunge into an elaborate maze of regularly trafficked tunnels, formerly rivers.
This is a wonderful opportunity to start the New Year being creative and exploring a new and warm place with students from all over.
$1900 + $99 virtual terminal fees and pre-workshop ZOOM
