Are you an aspiring or seasoned sculptor? Renowned Mexican sculptor, Manuel Palos, is hosting a retreat in Puerto Vallarta from February 4–16 and you’re invited. Whether a beginner looking to acquire new skills or a veteran wanting to create new pieces, this unique workshop offers an opportunity to learn from an accomplished master stone carver and architectural sculptor with more than 30 years of experience.

Originally from Zacatecas, Mexico, Manuel’s work can be found internationally from private commissions to major public sites, including The San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts.

Manuel will be accompanied by his associate, Martin Distancia, an award-winning sculptor and stone carver who contributed to the restoration of Puerto Vallarta’s Los Arcos del Malecón after Hurricane Kenna.

The retreat will take place at a villa studio owned by Manuel Palos located in Colonia 5 de Diciembre, near Parque Hidalgo. For more information about the program, visit
