Make your mark.

Participants in the March, 2017 Mosaics in Mexico tour and workshop created "El Sueno de La Rana," designed by host Anado McLauchlin. The mosaic is in the entryway of the compound and is seen by hundreds of visitors each month, who come from around the world to visit the site.

Join us for 9 nights and 10 days of mosaic magic. We'll visit the MVM factory in Cuernavaca, home of the Perdomo mosaic atelier. See large-scale artistic mosaics being created by skilled craftspeople. Purchase a bit of smalti to use in your next project. We'll dine in Tepoztlan, home of the magic mountains; visit the home of Frida Kahlo, the studio of Diego Rivera, and the extensive mosaic-covered campus of the National University of Mexico (UNAM). 

After visiting others' fascinating artwork, we'll head to the colonial town of San Miguel de Allende to create masterpieces of our own! Lodging is at a beautiful historic hotel in the center of San Miguel. Each day after breakfast, we'll head to La Cieneguita for daily workshop fun. Each participant will create their own "big hand" to embellish the special site at Casa de Las Ranas, home of sculptor Anado McLauchlin and art historian Richard Schultz.

Expert instruction, mosaic materials, wonderful meals, lodging and transportation during the tour in Mexico are included. 

Price is USD $2700 for double occupancy. A limited number of single rooms are available for a supplemental charge. Airfare is not included. For questions and registration information, please submit the form below, or email
