Participant selects either of the two workshops offered, which are conducted concurrently. One workshop taps the talents of accomplished native painters; the other the talents of master weavers in San Juan La Laguna at Lake Atitlan.

The painters work within the broad international genre of Arte naïf.

Mayan weaving is a more traditional expression of this culture, steeped in centuries of practice unchanged by time.
