Exploring Color and Composition with Kate McGloughlin
A Multi-Media Extravaganza
Join Kate McGloughlin on an Odyssey of color and composition throughout the streets of Mexico’s Colonial jewel, Oaxaca city. This rich and festive town inspires at every turn, with colorful buildings, friendly people,and an opulent cultural heritage that teems with art, history and the most diverse cuisine in all of Mexico.
We’ll spend a few days working on location in the painting media of your choice, and later in the week, under Kate’s guidance, have the opportunity to translate these images into color monotypes at Taller Bambú, one of Oaxaca’s original printmaking studios.
Find Your True Color with Francesca Matichak
Engage in a daily practice of yoga and begin to awaken a new side of yourself. The postures enliven, strengthen and purify our beings to step into each day with a fresh mind, energized body and budding joy in our hearts.
Come and de-stress, revive and have fun with daily rooftop yoga nestled in the beautiful surroundings of Oaxaca, Mexico. Following the teaching techniques of Iyengar yoga, which are very safe and focus clear attention on alignment, we will jump start a new way of generating health and happiness in our lives.
Oaxaca is an enchanting destination filled with art from galleries to the local market place and breathtaking Colonial Spanish architecture. We will sample scrumptious food from the local street vendors to five star rooftop cuisine.
We welcome all levels of participants from beginners to well seasoned yogis.
The Illuminated Journal with Susan Newbold
The journal is a place to clarify one’s thoughts, desires, and discoveries. Through a series of exercises enlightened by our surroundings, we will first create pages for our journal, then explore different media, including pen and ink, watercolor, collage and printmaking, combining innovative ways to create text with each medium. Finally we will put our pages into an artist book which will be finished with a special coptic binding. On this journey you will discover (or rediscover) what you love most. This course is designed for all levels, beginners welcome.
