Biblioteca’s Young Art Students Exhibit Their Work at University of Guanajuato

For the first time ever, more than 40 pieces by students at the Escuela de Arte Stirling Dickinson—a school within the Biblioteca—will be exhibited at the University of Guanajuato’s San Miguel Gallery.

The exhibit runs August 9–31.

The art school was founded four years ago by Rick and Liz Brunson, who with great passion have spent their time teaching children aged 14–18 everything from basic art skills to sculpture, painting, and even 3D murals. The school is free and sponsored by its founders and their friends.

Since the beginning, these founders have looked for official recognition of their courses by the University of Guanajuato. With this gallery exhibition, it appears that, finally, the plan is moving forward. The public exhibit opening is August 9 at 5pm.


Stirling Dickinson Escuela de Arte is a free art school open to the most artistically gifted high school-aged students in San Miguel. Many students stay for multiple years and continue until they are 18.

Admission to the school is by an individual portfolio review. Students must present a minimum of three art pieces. The school is based on the rigorous American university art and design curriculum.

The school offers various seasonal terms—sculpture in the spring, drawing classes in the summer, and painting instruction in the fall. Each 12-week semester consists of 24 classes.

For more information, call 551 784 2480 (Liz, in Spanish) or 415 149 1173 (Rick, in English).
