Trip to Guatemala
Basically, the trip is hosted by and is the creative brainchild of Cynthia Fisher , who is a mosaic artist of some renown. She also runs the business Big Bang Mosaics in Buckland Massachusetts. She does mosaic installations all over country and, obviously, in other countries.
She fell in love with Guatemala - particularly the little town of San Lucas Toliman on the shore of Lake Atitlan - and has collaborated with local artisans in the area for several years creating and installing mosaics highlighting the local culture and history. Happily, she allows mosaic artists of all experience levels to accompany her to help.
That is what we did on this trip. What we saw and learned while there is what we were planning to share with the group in the program this month. This is not an instructional program, exactly, although we will show some of the method used. But its more about the experience of being involved in this fun, educational and cultural exchange.
