WHERE: Located on the rugged and scenic Pacific coast of Northern California, Mendocino is a small but vitally artistic tourist village which is quiet during the month of January, the height of the local mushroom season. The Mendocino Art Center, located in the heart of of Mendocino, will host the classes and workshops .
