I’ve had several inquiries about workshops so I thought I would post these fantastic set of workshops held by the Spanish Colonial Arts Society  “Arts Alive!” education program.  It is an unbelievable opportunity to learn traditional Spanish Colonial Arts techniques from a Market Artist.  And, the best part, it’s completely FREE to members of the Spanish Colonial Arts Society and a mere Museum Admission charge to non-members!  If you’re interested, I suggest you call or email your reservation in right away.  You could try sending the reservation request by email to  Please let them know sent you!

John Jimenez“Retablo”  with John Jimenez

Wednesday  |  June 15th, 2011   |  10:00am-2:00pm
I actually took his workshop and he is just wonderful.  Mr. Jimenez has a wonderful flowing style and recently received the Lifetime Achievement Award I believe, for his retablo work.  He is the one who encouraged me to work with natural clays.  It was a whole new world for me.  You can read my blog post on my workshop experience with Mr. Jimenez HERE.

“Ramilletes (Paper Garlands)” with Museum Docents
Wednesday  |  June 29th, 2011  |  10:00am-2:00pm
Art Workshop making Ramilletes (Paper Garlands) with Museum Docents in Arts Alive, a free hands-on workshop for all ages.  I will try to make time to take this workshop as well.  I am very curious about this unusual and fleeting revival art.

Cleo Romero Tinsmith“Tinwork” with Cleo Romero
Wednesday  |  July 6th, 2011  |  10:00am-2:00pm
Art Workshop with Tinwork Spanish Market Artist Cleo Romero in Arts Alive, a free hands-on workshop for all ages.  I met Cleo at the artist’s retreat.  She seems very sweet.  That day, she won 3 of the door prizes, so I think of her as “Lucky Cleo.”  Her work is stunning and is very different from the work of the Delgado family. and Sean Wells y Delgado are not official representatives of the Spanish Colonial Arts Society or the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art.  However, I do contract with them on various projects.  Mainly, I just feel that we have an overlapping mission to promote the Spanish Colonial Arts, so I will be sharing relevant information here.
