The Colors of Oaxaca
Journal Workshop Adventure
October 16th – 23rd 2014
Las Tres Amigas, mixed media artists Syd McCutcheon, Mary Stanley, and tour host Colleen Darling are heading back to the magical city of Oaxaca for another fun-filled workshop and cultural adventure. The city of Oaxaca, a Unesco World Heritage site, has so much to offer with its warm friendly people, delicious food, world-renowned artists, colonial architecture, and pre-Colombian ruins.
The workshop will focus on creating a loose-leaf journal reflecting our time in beautiful Oaxaca. We will be collaging, altering photos, sketching, making stamps and learning new techniques to add to our journal creations. We will be visiting the Centro de Las Artes de San Agustin, a restored textile mill which is now home to a hand-made paper studio. In addition, we will visit Studio Xaquixe, a workshop that recycles glass from the local community, and transforms it into aesthetic and utilitarian works of art. Our time in the colonial city center will include trips to the vibrant local markets, diverse museums, and endless opportunities for shopping and ice cream.
