Punta Mita, A Tropical Paradise. A diverse ecosystem has fostered a tapestry of natural wonders at Punta Mita. From colorful marine and wildlife, to unusual birds and butterflies, to interesting flora and trees. Sea exploration reveals pods of wild dolphins and giant manta rays, the kaleidoscope of coral reef, home to tropical fish in every color and migrating humpback whales. About 25 miles north of the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, it’s only a 45-minute drive to the resort town’s main entrance.
Surfing in Punta Mita is great for surfers of all levels, with a variety of breaks to suit all skills. From stoked beginners to seasoned wave chasers, there are numerous surf breaks within minutes of Punta Mita. Because of its island-like geography it offers both northwest and southwest swell exposure, and captures decent surf conditions regardless of the swell or wind conditions. This makes Punta Mita a reliable, consistent year round surf destination. Add to this light crowds, breathtaking natural beauty, warm water temps year round, and easily accessible breaks. Winter is thought to be the best time for surf in Punta Mita.
About Your Painting Teacher. Wade Koniakowsky is one of the nation’s leading ocean-inspired artists. Wade began painting at the age of six and started surfing when he was 12. By blending these two passions, he has gained worldwide recognition for his oil paintings of tropical settings. Wade was selected by Vans as the artist of the 2018 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, the event that culminates the WSL surfing world tour. He has taught painting workshops for the last 10 years.
Painting Instruction will vary between studio and outdoor painting. ALL ART SUPPLIES WILL BE PROVIDED: paint, canvas, brushes and easels. Paint supplied will be ACRYLIC. If you use oils, you will need to bring your own. Feel free to bring any other specific supplies you like to use. Our focus will be OCEAN INSPIRED TROPICAL SCENES AND WAVES. We will go on several “plein air” excursions - getting our easels outdoors to a location where we can paint from life. Wade will personally scout scenes ideal to paint. A typical day would include one or more good surf sessions and 3 hours of painting instruction. Surf lessons are available.
Painting in Punta Mita. Wade has personally been on 2 paint and surf trips to Punta Mita in the past. “Punta Mita is rich with tropical beauty. I come back from a morning surf ready to grab my paints and immediately put to use the inspiration I’ve soaked up from the ocean”.
Cost. 2 Options are offered: 3 Days painting $225. USD or 5 Days painting $325. USD. All supplies provided, (acrylic paint).
