What you'll do

This experience is of 3 hours length 1. The first hour we meet at the "Ciudadela" arts-craft market, where you can get inspiration from the colorful and wide variety of articles we can see in there: Aztec-Mayan inspired objects, clothes, jewelry, decoration of glass, wood, masks, mirrors, sculptures, etc. We will be there 40 minutes that you can also use for shopping! 2. We head to my studio walking 15 minutes while we enjoy the beautiful streets of the "La Juarez, Cuauhtemoc" neighborhood. 3. The next two hours we stay in my studio working! You select one object you want to paint, either from real model (ie something you have bought) or a photograph and with the canvas I provide we start making a pencil drawing (if you are not used to it I will guide you to get the best drawing possible), and with acrylics we will add it color. Also we will eat Mexican candies and snacks and Mexican drinks such as chocolate and tea. At the end you will have created a mini canvas that is lightwave and that you can take it back home as a great memory and experience!
