Program Description:


Program Overview

Immerse yourself for a two week intensive in Guanajuato, Mexico, a UNESCO World Heritage city, rich with Pre-Colombian, Colonial, and Revolutionary history. A contemporary and historical look into printmaking, art, and culture will be examined during studio time, and experiential outings to local shops, museums, and galleries.

Monoprint, Drypoint, Pronto plate, and Relief block printmaking techniques will be explored as well as mixed media modes of art-making. Class time will be spent primarily in the studio, and on field trips to neighboring towns, villages, museums, and galleries.

What if we are unable to travel in Summer 2021?

PSU Education Abroad recognizes the uncertainty regarding international travel in the coming months. A decision regarding this program's ability to travel will be announced no later than May 1, 021. In the case that this program is not able to travel, students will have the option to be enrolled in an online version of this course during the summer of 2021. If you are accepted into the travel program, you will be guaranteed a spot in the online course. However, participation in the online course is not required. For this online course, students are charged the equivalent of 8 credits of tuition based on residency status (resident, non-resident or WUE) and enrollment level (undergraduate or graduate). The typical online fee of $35 per credit will also apply. Review the rates of tuition here.

Travel may be canceled due to (but not limited to) the following reasons: 
  • Travelers are required to quarantine for a number of days upon arrival 
  • Major program components cannot be supported due to local restrictions
  • It is deemed unsafe to travel

If PSU Education Abroad cancels the program, participants will be refunded the $50 application fee, if paid by the date of cancellation. Participants will not be charged the program fee.
