Join us on an exciting journey to experience authentic Mexico through its rich tradition of visual arts and cultural crafts. There is no better way to immerse oneself in a culture than by participating in its traditions. We will be touring Mexico City, Puebla, and Oaxaca, where we will participate in the unique art and cultural offerings of each place with hands-on experiences.
This interdisciplinary trip emphasizes both the artistic and cultural aspects, as well as the opportunity to practice or learn the Spanish language. We will have the opportunity to talk to experts and artisans to learn about painting, ceramics, weaving, cooking, and even creating alebrijes. No prior art or Spanish language exposure is necessary - just a willingness and desire to learn through creation and experience.
Our trip will be a unique opportunity to learn about the rich cultural heritage of Mexico and to create artwork that captures the essence of each place we visit. As we explore and create, we will deepen our understanding and appreciation of Mexican culture.
So, make sure to leave extra room in your suitcase for all the art we will be bringing back! Join us for an unforgettable trip filled with creative exploration and cultural immersion.
