Sketchbook Jump-start in Mexico, an art vacation on a shoestring.

Would you like to capture the moment in your sketchbook, during a vacation or an ordinary day? It will enhance your travel experience; give you confidence and inspiration as an artist. As a child did you use to make fast sketches with no concern or self judgment? Just for fun! Have you promised yourself for years, that some day you'll make time for art in your life? Are you a painter who never took an art or drawing classes? Do you wander if drawing/sketching would bring a new dimension to your art? Did you use to draw but got so involved with the technology that the computer offers that you lost touch with the joy of sketching with a pen or pencil? We created this art vacation for you and we made it so affordable  that it's no excuse not to say YES! With experience guidance from me Cristiana and from Fernando Gonzalez, both painters teaching from 1989, learn the art of “seeing” and transport the world around you into a quick sketch. If you are an artist at

Playa del Carmen, bargens

I found a store on the carretera 307  between 12 and 14 St, next to the Bimbo distribution center. BIMBO is similar toWander bread products. They have donats, cake, bread etc. It's a very smoll store, just a little door, easy to miss. They sale discounted BIMBO products, that expire in a week, or are already expired. I know in the US this kind of stores were very popular, so check it out!

Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo,   Mexico May 29, 2011-05-29 May   it allways being my favorite month in Playa del Carmen. The weather is just right! And this year it's being just so. If you love the beach try going early, 7AM. The beach is empty, beautiful for a walk on the beach. The beach stretches along the city. Starting in Playacar , gaited expatriates community with hotels aligned by the shore.   In Paya del Carmen per say it starts at Av. Juarez , by the ferry deck to Cazumel. You can walk all the way to Colosio.  The Royal Hotel     The beach changes as you progress, it's wideness, depth of the water at the shore. This time of the year the birds are almost all back, pelicans, seagirls, fregatas.   It is a special beauty about the beach in the morning. You'll pass several lines of boats. As the morning progresses, you'll see the sanitation department, peaking up trash, sea weed, drifted wood. If you started at Juarez, at 38 St go up the black to Qinta Avenida
