“Faces” ๐Ÿ˜Š ย Workshop in San Miguel de Allendeย 

John and I truly enjoyed teaching “The Face as Muse” workshop in lovely San Muigel recently. Every workshop has a special combination of learning, joy and laughter, and this one was filled with fun loving, talented folks who made the entire trip an artful adventure and a true pleasure. 

Many thanks to Kathie Vezzani and Ana Elena of Bellissima Art Escapes for making our time together so full of art, culture, fun and delicious culinary delights. The colorful city of San Muigel brings out the artist and explorer in us all. 

Here are a few photos!
