unbelievably, seats still available

International artist Yvan Genest will animate a weeklong
painting workshop entitled Magic Special Effects at Hacienda
Mosaico from March 29 to April 4. Magic Special Effects has
been designed to accommodate all skill levels, from novice
to professional. The intention is to provide an opportunity for
participants to improve their creativity while exploring the infinite
world of special effects, regardless of their painting style. Explore
new and exciting techniques while experimenting with a variety of
painting instruments from brushes to innovative printing objects.
Participants will learn new and exciting techniques and experiment
fabulous effects that will provide the perfect opportunity to explore
and diversify their artistic expression
Although it is helpful to have previous acrylic painting
experience, this is not a requirement. Genest suggests participants
bring their own supplies including brushes, acrylic tubes and
medium gels. Other materials are included in the workshop
package. For an additional fee, supplies can be purchased on site
with prior arrangement. Those who do not require lodging have
to bring the required supplies.
Yvan Genest has been practicing and exploring several mediums
from watercolor to digital art, for the last thirty years and has run
many workshops in Canada, France and Mexico.
New workshop at Hacienda Mosaico.

He has worked and exhibited in Puerto Vallarta for over twelve
years, becoming one of the most recognized artists of the city’s
artistic scene. Devoted to his art and to the exploration of various
mediums, acrylic remains his main land of expression.
He is represented locally by Galleria Dante. For any questions
about this workshop, please contact Yvan directly: workshop@
