I started my career as a sculptor in 2012, in the City of Guanajuato Capital. That same year I had my first individual exhibition at the Museo Exconvento Dieguino in the Historic Center of Guanajuato and shortly after I began to share my knowledge by teaching clay sculpture classes.
From that year to date I have had fourteen exhibitions in different cities and I have continued with sculpture classes in both public and private institutions.
Experiencing the pleasure of transforming clay into art has been a fabulous revelation in my life, it is the perfect opportunity to combine creativity, expression, beauty and character. I can say that I have married to this trade from which I continue to learn, share and enjoy.

How about sculpting in a professional artist's studio?

What a wonderful experience! It was our first time taking a clay sculpture class and Saul was so patient with us and a great teacher. We learned so much and had so much fun. We couldn’t have asked for a better class or better instructor. Go ahead and book you won’t regret it!

We are so glad and appreciative to had the opportunity to experience saul’s class . Saul,the very talented artist was a superb instructor. The style of teaching allowed for our own ideas and creativity while learning many new techniques and enhancements. Saul is very attentive, patient and so talented. This was not a touristy promotion but a genuine ‘off the beaten track SMA ART studio experience. This is something we look forward to doing again !! . Thank you again Saul ! This was also well priced at a super value . You’re a great/beautiful human being brother . Peace and love from Texas !

Fun experience! Small art gallery to explore before/after. We were offered beverages to enjoy while getting our hands dirty with clay! Saul was awesome helping those of us who are not artistic end up with a cool sculpture. Great to try new things!
