Take a break from your computer and visit your right brain! In this playful, innovative art class we explore the mysteries of creativity, useful techniques in learning how to get out of our own way, and secrets of the art making process. As your inner artist loosens up, so does your ability to breathe and flow, to problem solve and think outside of the box. Drawing, painting, mixed media and more, in a relaxed atmosphere where the inner critic is not invited! Supply fee: $15

Join Kamla Kakaria and Romson Bustillo for a week long mixed media printmaking intensive in Chacala, Mexico (one hour north of Puerto Vallarta). Work with Mexican artist Miguel Perez at his studio Grafica Chacala, and our own Larry Calkins to create works inspired by the environment of the beach and the jungle. We will visit and take rubbings from the petroglyphs at Alta Vista. This region was originally home to the largely unstudied Tecoxquin) native culture dating from approximately 2000 BC to 2300 BCE. It contains 56 petroglyphs whose antiquity cannot be accurately determined. Aside from its cultural and archeological importance, the site remains an important religious center for the Huicholes who still leave offerings and perform ceremonies here. Tuition includes lodging for seven nights (Saturday to Friday) giving students a day to explore Oaxaca before the workshop begins. Airfare not included. Prerequisite: None
