I graduated from art school in California and now live in Puerto Vallarta. This artist paradise hosts artists from all over the world. Here I learned Huichol crafts from local women and just fell in love with it. Huichol art makes my mind calm and my heart happy, it is just magic.

Rafael was super nice and attentive while giving instructions as well as historical stories behind the processes of what we were doing. Highly recommended for artsy & crafty people. What a best way to bring back a piece of souvenir that you made yourself during vacation!

I started the project rather nervous and unsure but by the end of the superior art technique instruction I was so proud of my final brightly colored mandala. I was taught the history of many art forms found throughout Mexico. It was an outstanding afternoon. Now I have a more meaningful souvenir to share with my family and friends.
