New San Miguel location for winter classes
A warm terra cotta courtyard draped with San Miguel’s signature mix of bougainvillea and cacti will be the setting for the next workshop series at La Mansion del Bosque.
You might know La Mansion from their hearty and delicious breakfasts, served 8-10am. Or perhaps you have smelled the heady scent of coffee while you strolled by their front door, since the charming BnB is just across the street from the much celebrated Parque Juarez in the center of town.
This winter, La Mansion will be hosting our oil painting and drawing workshops, starting Monday, January 18th, until February 24th.
The workshops run for a full 6 weeks, although you are welcome to customize your schedule if you are only able to attend one or more weeks. Practice is its own reward, however, a discount is available for students who choose to sign-up for the full 6 weeks.
The 2 workshops on offer will be taught by yours truly, Jessica Antonelli.
10 Steps to Drawing Anything is a popular class which debuted in San Miguel last year. This class will meet you where you are at any level, however my specialty is bringing confidence and greater accuracy in drawing what you see to students who *think* they can’t draw. We will work both indoors and in the courtyard, with occasional field trips (walking) to sketch from life in the park. This class is kept to a cozy 8 students maximum, which means lots of personal attention from the teacher and a super fun studio vibe to draw in.
1:00pm-2:30pm, Monday Tuesday Wednesday, $600 pesos per week, or SAVE by signing up for all 6 weeks ($450pesos/week, aprox. $87US)
Oil Painting Foundations is a class for beginning to intermediate oil painters. We will paint outdoors in the courtyard, which offers shaded areas and coffee nearby. Over the course of the 6 weeks we will cover materials and mediums, basic color theory and mixing, using glazes, all-prima (or ‘all at once’ technique), creating depth and emphasis, and composition basics. Subjects will be inspired from our San Miguel surroundings, although you are also welcome to bring in photos to paint from.
3:00pm-5:30pm, Monday Tuesday Wednesday, $750 pesos per week, or SAVE by signing up for all 6 weeks (save $1,000pesos/ aprox. $60US)
