Was ihr unternehmen werdet

My friend Cesar will pick you at your hotel or wherever else is convenient for you. From there it will take around 30 minutes to the Aleberije village Arrazola in their private car.

In Arrazola, you will meet me, my wife Antonia and our son Alejandro at our workshop to show you the entire creation process of our amazing art: from carving the wood; making natural colors out of local fruits, insects and minerals to painting the figures in the traditional design with acrylic paint.

Cesar will translate into English if needed.

Now the fun part starts. Time to get creative. You will choose a small plain wooden animal figure to paint yourself which could take up to two hours. Brushes and colors will be provided. This will be a lovely souvenir to take home and remember this experience!

Besides all this, you can check our gallery for more stunning art!

After we finished in Arrazola, Cesar will take you back to the starting point.

Hi, my name is Armando. I live in Arrazola, the village where alebrijes were born, around 14 km away from Oaxaca City. It was my grandfather Manuel Jiménez, who became famous for his wooden alebrijes in 1950.
Making alebrijes is my passion. I've been carving and painting the figures for more than 30 years. My entire family is into this beautiful art, like most families here in Arrazola.
Together with my friend Cesar which I met through my work, we want to teach more people about our way to express emotions through the Alebrijes work and welcome you in my village.

This was an enchanting experience. Cesar was a delightful facilitator and I am grateful for the opportunity to have such an intimate interaction with Armando and his lovely family learning about the iconic tradition for whom Armando's grandfather is credited as the originator. We talked and laughed while painting our own authentic alebrijes. I would recommend this experience to everyone. Esta fue una experiencia encantadora. César fue un facilitador amable y estoy agradecido por la oportunidad de tener una interacción tan íntima con Armando y su linda familia aprendiendo sobre la tradición icónica de la que se acredita al abuelo de Armando como el creador. Hablamos y reímos mientras pintamos nuestros propios alebrijes auténticos. Recomendaría esta experiencia a todos.

Absolutely wonderful to hear the background and career of not just Armando but his family! Extremely talented and creative. This is a must if you are visiting Oaxaca!

It was great learning the history of the Albrijes and how that all started. Armando reminded me of that cool uncle some of us are blessed to have who pass on wisdom from previous generations and teach us what it was like in past days. The atmosphere was relaxed, pleasant and warm. Our guide César was a wealth of information and an all around good guy. Took us to a great spot to eat as well as a museum and also recommended other activities worth looking into. Would most definitely recommend.

Thank you Armando and Cesar for an amazing experience! Cesar was so great communicating with me and what to expect, so I knew our group was in for a wonderful afternoon! Our group absolutely loved hearing about the history of the alebrijes and seeing his process of carving and painting. Next, we sat down and picked our own figures to paint. It was so nice and relaxing chatting with Cesar and Armando's family. They also offered some helpful painting tips as well for us who needed a little inspiration! I could've spent all day there and would not hesitate to do the experience again!

This experience was a highlight of my 4 month trip to experience! I am an artist and teacher and was excited to paint alongside the creators of these beautiful sculptures. In addition, the planning, transportation and communication with Cesar was seemless! Which was so welcome! I super highly recommend this painting, cultural experience! Armando, Antonio, their son and Cesar are super nice, accomodating and made this a special experience i will relish for years to come. Armando’s grandfather started this artisitc tradition and was so cool to see those pictures too. Thank you Muchissimo for a fabulos day!! Xo
