The Nature of Mexico: Explorations in Multi Media
February 5 - 12, 2011
Join artist Geninne D. Zlatkis for a week in Queretaro, Mexico. Yes, that’s right! - Geninne from Geninne’s Art Blog! This is a four day workshop with two free days. The workshop will be in Geninne’s studio and includes a hand carved stamp tutorial and simple ways to incorporate stamp design onto something useful like wrapping paper, cards, journals, basic watercolor techniques, journaling and mixed media collage incorporating vintage ephemera and collected bits of paper from your Mexican workshop/vacation. You will be sent out on an adventure exploring in Queretaro to find special memorabilia to use in your collage. Queretaro is one of Mexico's cleanest and safest cities. The old colonial town was inscribed in 1996 as World Heritage by the UNESCO.
The group will be staying at Hotel La Casa de la Marquesa - a historical baroque home turned into an exclusive luxury hotel. This beautiful historical building is just one block away from the main square of the city and close to restaurants and shopping. We will travel as a group to the studio each workshop day.
Geninne is an artist/illustrator living in the beautiful colonial city of Queretaro in Mexico with her husband Manolo, their two very creative boys & a cute border collie puppy named Turbo.
She was born in New York, but shortly after her parents began traveling around South America, where she lived in seven different countries and went to several English speaking schools. She studied architecture in Chile for a couple of years before graduating as a graphic artist in Mexico.
She works in a variety of media, including watercolor, ink, and pencil. She sews, embroiders, loves to hand carve rubber stamps and sells prints of her watercolors at her online Etsy Shop geninne.etsy.com. She loves birds, flowers, and has been taking photos since she was 15 years old.
