    ARTES was created by classically trained artist and master teacher, Oscar Aguirre and designed to foster an environment of creative discovery in traditional arts education through the open studio method.

    Director, Oscar Aguirre has lived, worked and taught students of all ages in San Miguel de Allende for nearly 25 years. A classically trained artist with a degree in museology, he has exhibited widely in museums throughout Mexico, the United States and Europe and through prestigious venues such as ARCO, España and Art Basel, Miami, Florida. He taught modeling and sculpture at the Bellas Artes, San Miguel for 10 years and served as Co-Director of Kunst Haus Gallery, Santa Fe. SMA. He has conducted innumerable workshops and arts-education events for years for children of all ages throughout San Miguel and other cities.

    Much of Aguirre’s work is informed through his keen environmental awareness and passion for environmental conservation reflected in his frequent use of recycled materials. In one especially memorable project– an installation requiring 1000 bottles– he set about with a group of children to collect the bottles and in doing so, cleaned several abandoned lots that had been garbage-strewn for years. (See full CV attached).

    Most arts education programs are limited to group instruction, but in the ARTES open studio environment, individual instruction and mentoring of students– at all ages and skill levels– is provided in a multicultural, intergenerational and bi-lingual environment. At the beginning of their course of study, each student is assessed to determine experience and skill level, then a particular medium is chosen– whether painting, drawing, modeling or interdisciplinary– and the design for a project and its completion is underway. The multi-cultural, bi-lingual and intergenerational environment at ARTES allows for lively, cross-cultural exchanges, discoveries and a nurturing interaction that we believe is unique to the ARTES open studio experience.

    There are currently 25 students studying at ARTES, with 15 adults and 10 children between the ages of  7 and 14.
