Earlier this month we started a special blog about the numerous schools and institutions in San Miguel that provide our guests at our vacation home the opportunity to enjoy some time off while they refine their interests in art and culture.

As there are so many options, we’re going to continue to list some of the other options that await those who travel to our magnificent community to enrich their appreciation of the artistry of their choice.
