Centro de las Artes San Agustin

During four days I took two illustration classes held in Centro de las Artes San Agustin aka CASA. CASA is located on the outskirts of the city of Oaxaca in a Pueblo call Vista Hermosa.
CASA is such a beautiful place and it has strong history.It used to be a textile factory, and you can still see some of the machinery used. The factory closed in 1989 and it was abandoned, until one of Oaxaca most know artist Francisco Toledo proposed saving the building, hence it was restored and brought back to life  as a space for artist to learn and communicate and create wonderful pieces of work. It is truly a palce to find inspiration, and learn new things (I truly did) and I plan to come back many times.

I will talk about each class in the next two blog posts!
