Our educational programs, workshops, retreats and expeditions are learning experiences that immerse you in the culture as you explore and develop your own creative talents and skills around a particular topic or area. You are more than a tourist as you live and learn in a family-friendly indigenous village. For current program offerings, see the column on the right side of the page.

Customized Programs We also schedule customized programs for individuals or small groups according to your travel plans and our artists’ availability. Participants’ skill levels vary from novice to experienced, and we are able to give personalized attention because the group is small. Groups can include mothers/daughters, families and friends.
