THE ART OF SEEING, New photographer’s travel tour in San Miguel de Allende 2013

Image
We are a team of two painters who recently moved to San Miguel from Playa del Carmen Mexico. We both love photography  and when taking a photo we understand, from an artist perspective , the importance of light, contrast, texture, layout, positive and negative space and so on. My first artistic appearances in the New Your art galleries was with photography. My teacher, photographer of NYC Ballet, at the time made a great impact in the way I “see” through the camera lenses. I no longer show or sell my photographs but the teacher in me (my first teaching experience was in 1989 in NYC) loves to share the way of “ Seeing”  as a photographer and artist. San Miguel de Allende offers an endless fountain of subject: architecture, nature, people… Join us in this charming Mexican town , bring your camera, and we’ll show you the best hidden place and share with you the art of SEEING.

The city is alive, music, mariachi, cafes, artisans, everyone out in the street as soon as the sun rises and late into the night. Every day is a holyday! So much to see, absorb, so much to paint here! I am not ready to paint yet, need time to absorb all this constant motion of people, markets, shops, and venders. Soon I’ll start painting. The workshops will be offered from the terrace of our building with a spectacular view! See the photo on top of my page.
