Creative Postcards of San Miguel
Creative Postcards of San Miguel – Now Available
By Jaci Winters
Paintings by students in Biblioteca Art Classes held every day Mon – Friday 3-5pm have provided the wonderful and creative images for these new postcards, now available in La Tienda and at the Teatro Santa Ana ticket booth.
The extent of the talent displayed by the students is not only surprising but unique. Many of these students have attended classes for many years and learned numerous techniques from artists and teachers which they have incorporated into their work.
Some of their art work is displayed on the wall beside the stairs to the Cafe and in the foyer of the theater. The large pictures sell for 100 pesos and can be purchased in the Tienda . Students receive 50 percent of these sales to encourage them to continue their art.
The Biblioteca wanted to share the work of these talented art students with a wider audience, so we reproduced postcards of many of their paintings to sell to visitors and residents. The children’s creative images of San Miguel make wonderful cards to send to friends and relatives outside San Miguel and also make a nice gift. Recently Biblioteca donors received a gift set of these postcards at the Donor Reception.
All sales of the cards assist the Biblioteca to continue its educational art program for Mexican youth. A set of six postcards is available in La Tienda for 50 pesos or single cards can be purchased at the theater ticket counter for 10 pesos.
