Ką veiksite

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.

The workshop takes place in the front yard of my house. There is a cute area with tables and chairs under a roof to get creative. The gallery and two dogs are also part of the house.

The experience in taller “Armando Jimenez” was magical. He shared with us all his knowledge about “Alebrijes” and the history about it. Also, his family was there painting at the same time like us and that was interesting because we realized all the hard work behind the alebrijes. In addition, Cesar was on time to collect us from the hotel and he dropped us back. I can only recommend this experience.

What a treat! I loved every minute of this excursion. It’s very interactive in that you get to paint your own alebrije after learning the history of Armando’s family. Cesar was a great guide and helped translate the story for those of us who are still learning Spanish. He also shared some tasty mezcal while we painted. This experience was a 20/10!

One of my favorite memories in all my travels within Mexico. This was so much better than just going on a tour to visit a place where you briefly watch to learn how Aleberijes are made. This was the full experience and really something special. Not only do you get to learn how it's done from the direct descendant of the person who first created the Aleberijes, but you have a chance to try it for yourself. Sitting in the garden, painting my owl, with the family was truly a once in a lifetime moment I won't soon forget. If you want a proper cultural experience, and not just a 'drive by', definitely take advantage of this experience.

You have to go on this experience. A trip to oaxaca would not be complete without visiting the iconic Jimenez family that has contributed so much to the world of art for four generations. The entire family along with their family friend Cesar welcomed us with open, familial arms. We had such a blast that we didn't want to leave. 🤣 Ride to and from your hotel/airbnb is included. We were walked through the different stages of alebrije making, its history, and went full hands-on with painting an alebrije of our own choice :)

From start to finish, this trip was fantastic! Family Jimenez and Cesar blew me away with their time, knowledge, humor and talent. I’ll definitely do this experience again. Truly, one of a kind.

César and Armando (and family) provided the most magical experience! Meeting the artist and seeing him create the alebrijes with a machete was something I will never forget. César is incredibly nice, funny, and welcoming. I enjoyed the chat in the car almost as much as painting. He is very knowledgeable, and is fluent in English and Spanish. During our chat, he mentioned that he wanted to make a difference…and he is! He connects us to the artist’s world, and I felt good knowing that our money was going directly to the artists, Armando and his family. Armando, his wife and son, were also incredibly welcoming. They opened our home to us, and that itself is a gift. Do not hesitate to book this event. This was definitely a highlight of our trip.
