I have just gotten back from Mexico and had the greatest experiences. I went
to Mexico for 2 weeks on a Crizmac scholarship. You go to Spanish classes in
the morning and then there are all sorts of art classes and field trips to go
on in the afternoon. I would check out their website if you are interested
in applying. It pays for everything but your airfare.
I choose to rent a house rather then stay with a family. It turned out to be
the house of an artist who was good friends with Elizabeth Catlett! He took
us to her studio and we spent hours talking to her and watching her do a wood
carving. She is 84 and amazing!
We also went to Frida and Diego's 2 houses in Mexico city!
