The Stirling Dickinson Escuela De Arte is the brain child of Rick Brunson M.A. who taught university and high school art classes in the US for 34 years. When Rick retired from teaching he traveled to Mexico and discovered the rich artistic history of San Miguel De Allende. His personal inspiration was reading about Stirling Dickinson and the art movement Stirling started in SMA. Rick found a need here in SMA for quality art instruction for 14 to 17 year old students. His vision is to train those students who are interested in preparation for University. His school has been open for almost two years now and there are at present four students moving on into the University with excellent artist skills. Ricardo Jimenez, a former student, won top honors as a student of the University of Guanajuato’s art department. The school is running out of space with 11 students now working in a small space. The need for the school is to expand its space. We have the architectural design and location. We have raised $15,500 toward the needed amount of $28,000.
