What People Say:
"Cristi and Fernando are warm and welcoming. They make you their top priority when they are with you. They are professional and knowledgeable but most of all they are patient. The gallery and studio are so colorful and inviting. I watched a very informative and helpful demo and then did two outdoor sketching classes with Cristi. I could see improvement with each class. It was fun to see the beauty of San Miguel with an artist's eye. I did a class with Fernando which produced a lovely painting. I would highly recommend these classes for a day or an extended time. Cristi and Fernando are both fluent in English which is a tremendous help in understanding what you are seeing and doing.
 Thank you Cristi and Fernando; you are special gift from San Miguel!"  Karen, Fort Myers, FL, visited Aug. 2018
