MBS Students Experience Mexico Through its Artistic Traditions

During spring break, 12 MBS students took an exciting journey to Mexico to experience the country through its rich artistic traditions. They toured Mexico City, Puebla, and Oaxaca, where they participated in the unique artistic and cultural offerings of each place with hands-on experiences.

The group took walking tours of each city, visited Frida Kahlo's house, a chocolate factory, a traditional Tejidos La Grana rug-weaving studio and two archaeological sites (Monte Alban and Cholula). Students also had hands-on learning experiences creating their own hand-made tortillas, Alebrijes and Talavera painted ceramics.

The students who participated in the trip were: Antonella Ortega ‘24, Emerson Greenberg ‘24, Luca Tutela ‘24, Zachary Brown ‘24, Xola Moody ‘24, Jenebah Tyler ‘25, Luke Glassman ‘25, Oliver Blum ‘26, Sophia Solomon ‘26, Jamie Rosenbloom ‘26, Maya LeVasseur ‘26, and Alexandra Hammond ‘26.

They were accompanied by faculty chaperones Zachary Mazouat, Jaimie Bass, and Deanna Whelan.
