We love to receive our participants’ suggestions, and add new programs to our existing classes and workshops. As some of you have mentions, one week of sketching and painting is not enough, since San Miguel de Allende has so much to offer. And one month may be a long time for some. So we created a new 2 workshop. This is ideal for beginner to intermediate artists who want to build the habit of urban sketching and plein air watercolor painting. During the first week we'll focus on understanding the principles of sketching, then practicing it around town.
