We just returned from an incredible trip to San Miguel de Allende. Our Tesoro Del Corazon art retreat was a resounding success with most folks wanting to return next year! It is not surprising because San Miguel is such a magical town especially during Dia de los Muertos and this year was no exception. The town was festively decorated with flags and flowers. Marigolds were draped around front doors and windows and altars popped up throughout the week around the Jardin.
On top of all this was the fact that we were there to create art! Wow, the Santos Real project turned out to be something truly special. Each Santos had a charm of their own and the loving care to detail was evident in each sculpture.
We were delighted to have Elitia Hart from Canada join us as our first guest artist this year. Her work in pewter embossing is superb and we know that participants thoroughly enjoyed learning from her.
Of course, the time flew by all too quickly and we were soon having our farewell dinner in the shadows of the beautiful Parroquia. We will all miss the time spent together but know that many of the friendships created will last a lifetime....and so will the memories of San Miguel, 2015.
We are already in the planning stages for our retreat in 2016 and have tentative dates penciled in for October 27-November 4
More info will be announced in mid-January....stay tuned!
(PS. Leslie is taking a much needed vacation from her computer until January!)
