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 am 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 will 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 night at the Hacienda El Sanctuario!
