We had so much fun the first time, we decided to do it again. Join cultural curator, Jewel Murphy and mixed media artist, Mija Matriz, for nine glorious days enjoying the magical city of Oaxaca with a group of like minded creatives. We'll immerse ourselves in the contemporary arts and culture of the city and the indigenous wisdom of the villages then bring this inspiration to our creation in our light-filled studio. Mija will lead us with daily journal prompts and artistic practices for creating in our journals. Our focus will be on mixed media collage and this year’s special outings include encounters at a sustainable paper making factory, a hands on natural dye demonstration, a visit to the private home of the late Mexican maestro painter and collage artist Rodolfo Morales and learning about the collective nature of printmaking at the workshop Subterraneous.
We’ll be staying at the wonderful Casa Colonial, a classic hacienda near the center of town with lovely gardens, a fantastic art collection, serene library, beautiful dining room amazing staff and our own private art studio.
Our itinerary is carefully crafted to have both structured and free time. It is also subject to change based upon availability and opportunity.
