New Painting Workshop at Casa de La Noche
Paint in the famous old San Miguel Bordello, renovated with all the modern amenities while keeping its Mexican charm (www.casadelanoche.com). Lots of inspiration for painting and photography! Choose your own subject matter using acrylics or oils, learning effective techniques from an experienced art teacher. The workshop will be held in the well-appointed workshop facility on the beautiful B&B premises every morning from 10am to 1pm, allowing free time in the afternoons and evenings to paint, do photography, or explore San Miguel and nearby attractions.
