#akumalartsfestival

Our AAF returning artist @registered_artist led a stencil making workshop and then created a mural with the students and the stencils they created. The results were beautiful! He also organized “Free Art Friday” where artists left works of art around the pueblo for anyone to take - free! He created this video recap. 🌸🍃

Many workshops were taking place throughout the pueblo during the festival. The drumming workshop, lead by Michael Stewart started by practicing in the park and after one additional rehearsal, they performed on the second night of the festival! 🥁 Muchos talleres se llevaban a cabo en todo el pueblo durante el festival.

Close up of this Kukulkan inspired mural I did at the secondary school in Akumal Mexico @akumalartsfestival last week🔮 Such an incredible experience & adventure! After painting and taking a step back it seemed this mural came to life as a guardian of the school and the kids. Was an honor to share my art there. I hope it inspires, uplifts & gives a protective energy to the spirit of that place & community. Many many thank yous to all the organizers & contributors of the fest! Truly a magical, humbling experience. 💕🎨🖌🌈🦄 #beahcreates #beahromero #kukulkan #mayanculture #akumalartsfestival #muralart #muralfestival #angelicwarrior #akumalmexico #caribbean #muralartist #artista #festivaldearte

As you have clearly seen by all of my posts this past week, the @akumalartsfestival is an incredible event drawing artists from all over the world to share love with a small pueblo in Mexico. I feel honored to have been invited for the 2nd year to capture some of that magic and share it with you.🙏Anyone who was there knows that Akumal changes you; it opens your heart to all things beautiful, and I am so grateful to have been part of it yet again. Please check out my story on @soldmag today (link in my bio or by visiting soldmagny.com), which attempts to convey just a bit of that love and magic that was shared last week. And thank you to everyone involved, from the artists, to the volunteers, to the the performers, to the workshop leaders, to the students and people of the community of Akumal. Thank you for opening your homes and your hearts. For that, I will be eternally thankful. Much love.

Community Engagement - The children of the Pueblo were able to participate in the various art projects going on before and during the festival. @Depoh painted the stairs in La Cancha with help from the local high school students, @saramolano made “love rocks” with students while she painted her mural in the elementary school and @Juuangel showed aspiring photographers how to use a camera. These are just a few examples. This is a beautiful snapshot of activities in the pueblo by @juuangel 🎥 • El compromiso de la comunidad es clave. Los niños del pueblo pudieron participar en los diversos proyectos de arte que se llevan a cabo antes y durante el festival. @Depoh pintó las escaleras en La Cancha con la ayuda de los estudiantes locales de secundaria, @saramolano hizo "piedras de amor" con los estudiantes mientras pintaba su mural en la escuela primaria y @Juuangel mostró a los aspirantes a fotógrafos cómo usar una cámara.

One of my favorite new (to me) artists that I met in Mexico for the @akumalartsfestival was Katie Reidy @rarigrafix.😊Not only is her work right up my alley with the bright colors and sense of whimsy, but she has such a wonderful spirit and generosity that I respect greatly. I had posted a couple wip shots early on, but here are her final walls as well as a shot of her doing a workshop with the kids at the community center.🤗I look forward to seeing her and her work again soon. Her walls are located right across from the community center in the Akumal Pueblo.
