  Mexico: Oaxaca

Santo Domingo Church


The 2011 Oaxaca workshop is on hold. Since it is a long time away, I will make a decision sometime in the beginning of 2011.

Oaxaca is a fascinating city situated in the southern bulge of Mexico, surrounded by mountains and rich with a diversity of people and cultures, Zapotec and Mixteca, among others.

The sketching workshop will be starting at 8am on October 25 and will end after breakfast on November 4 (you should plan to arrive in Oaxaca on the 24). The 10 day workshop will take place during the Day of the Dead celebration. Other days wil be spent discovering and sketching the fascinating city of Oaxaca and other nearby villages and archeological sites: Teotitlan del valle, Tlacolula, Mitla, Monte Alban.

For the duration of the workshop, you will be staying at "La Casa Arnel", a family operated "pension", where you will be guaranteed a peaceful and hospitable retreat.

Situated 10 minutes walking from the zocalo, La Casa Arnel features a terrace facing the 17th century church of Jalatlaco, and an enclosed patio shaded with tropical plants and flowers. All rooms look into the garden where birds sitting outside their cages will sing operas for you (like it or not) and add a total exotic touch to the place!

All rooms are double occupancy with a private bathroom. Single rooms are available for an additional cost. Hearty breakfasts will be served on the terrace. Traditional Oaxacan dinners will be served in a restaurant one block away from La Casa Arnel


Cost: $1950 includes ten-day workshop, lodging, ten breakfasts and dinners and transportation for excursions. Airfare and transportation to and from Mexico City are not included.

Non-participants will pay $200 less than “regular”participants, but will still have to pay the $400 non-refundable deposit.

To hold your place, send me a registration form. The $400 non-refundable deposit should be sent June 15, 2009. Please do not send deposits before June 15, 2009. The balance of $1550 will be due July 25, 2009. See registration form for refund policy.
