Linda Whynman


Linda Whynman and her husband, Saul, retired to San Miguel de Allende over 14 years ago from New York. Linda has been involved in art and art education her entire professional career. She has taught art from kindergarten level to Masters Degree programs.  She was also the Arts in Education Director in New York State. Her areas of media expertise include watercolor and computer graphics. She is currently represented by Galeria San Francisco in San Miguel de Allende.

She has designed books for several authors and her paintings are represented in galleries and homes from Saint Petersburg, Norway, the East Coast of the US to Mexico. Working with Lorie Topinka, she most recently co-authored Capillas of San Miguel de Allende: A Legacy of Faith.  This lovely travel book focuses on the small chapels around San Miguel and includes suggested day-trips to these chapels, the history of the area, along with photos and watercolors of the chapels. For more information on this book, go to:

“When I’m sketching and painting, I am fully present in the moment. It is a deeply pleasurable and creative experience. It keeps me centered. Then later on, when I look at a painting I have completed, I remember the all the sounds, the temperature, the people who passed by, and the entire plein aire experience. This process has helped me to love Mexico even more – and it’s a process I’d like to share with you!”

Thank you for your interest in joining me on a watercolor adventure. I can assure you that you will be more than pleased and proud of your artistic growth and your appreciation of the medium.

There are several class sessions you can choose from. Each class session runs from 9:30-12:30 for 4 mornings at the San Francisco Annex, which is to the right of the entrance arch of the Fabrica Aurora on Calzada de Aurora. This is an excellent location with easy parking and coffee nearby. The classes are not sequential and you can join any one session (4 classes) -- and you can stay on for more. Each session is 225 USD each session.
