Message from Meagan:
I've recently moved back to San Miguel de Allende after three years in Mexico City, which was a powerhouse education on Mexico and it's history. I'm an artist who likes to draw as I learn about history and art, and so I've created a series of art experiences in San Miguel de Allende that'll enrich your life not only as an artist, but as a visitor to this historic and artistic Mexican mecca. Join me for a fun and festive afternoon at the Cañada de la Virgen, don't miss this grand finale of artistic events!
A Special Note to Artists Visiting Cañada de la Virgen:
In order to have permission to draw and/or paint at Cañada de la Virgen, we must all agree to be mindful of our supplies and not let anything blow away. There will be a water station set up and it is vitally important that dirty paint water is not thrown into the ground. We must leave the grounds in better shape than when we arrived, so everything brought in must be removed. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Cost to Attend: $125 USD Round Trip Transportation, Gourmet Organic Asado Thursday, March 21, 2024 12:30pm - 6:00pm
