In The Studio

Our goal is to refresh your artistic vision by exploring a very special place where art is found not only in galleries, museums and crafts but in nearly every aspect of daily life.

Stimulated by visits to the studios of local artists, carefully chosen field trips, and your instructors’ knowledge of Oaxaca’s special places, you’ll soon find a path to your own vision of this remarkable city.
Choose among painting, photography and collage, or explore each medium–perhaps even a combination of all three.

Working side by side with other students, you’ll benefit from in studio supervision, direction and encouragement. And during daily individual crits and class discussions, you’ll have an ongoing opportunity to review your progress with your instructors and fellow students.
If new to collage, you'll learn layering, composition, enhancing forms, creating mood and adding the unexpected. In the studio and in the field, our photography students will study framing, composition, light,motion and how to make better use of their cameras. All our students will be encouraged to discover their own unique point of view.
We’re confident that you’ll find your visual vocabulary enriched by your experiences both in and out of our studio, and, like so many artists before you, will leave with an expanded, reinvigorated vision and work that reflects the spirit and the magic of Oaxaca.
