Such a special and authentic experience while visiting in Ensenada. Aalberto was a great teacher and we learned so much about the craft of print making. Ours even turned out really well!! An afternoon well spent :)

Octavio was an incredible host and teacher. The studio is centrally located with parking available. His instructions are clear and helpful, and he has a great voice! The process was challenging and fun, even for two people who don't ever do art. We were really delighted to learn about print making, and will plan to return to Octavio's studio on future trips to Ensenada. THANK YOU OCTAVIO FOR A GREAT AFTERNOON! Also, the Israeli food next door is delicious!

My daughter and I attended the printmaking session with Adalberto and it was absolutely lovely! My daughter is an artist and I am barely comfortable with stick figures, and although we have different skill levels we both loved the class. The experience was totally creative, calming, and insightful. We learned and experienced the art of printmaking in 3 impactful hours. You will not be disappointed by this experience. In fact it made me want to go home and set up a studio of my own! We will be back :-)

Adalberto facilitated a wonderful experience for my husband and I. If you’ve ever wanted to try printmaking this is the perfect experience. He keeps the experience simple so you don’t get overwhelmed, and you get to come out of with some beautiful prints.
