"Thoroughly Oaxaca Art Experience 2: mixed media, natural pigments"

Join Oaxacan watercolor artist Pedro Cruz Pacheco and immerse yourself in the soulful art scene, indigenous culture, rich culinary and artisanal traditions of this magical colonial city, a UNESCO world heritage site. Field trips include a Sunday open air market, artisan studios, Francisco Toledo's CaSa arts center, and a papermaking studio. Use locally sourced natural pigments to make uniquely Oaxacan memories on paper in a handmade artist book. Develop your unique voice and mark making by playing with different materials.
