"Two of my friends and I recently took the Art Adventure class with Cristiana. Our experience was incredible! Cristiana took us around town to see the beautiful character of San Miguel while teaching us to look for interesting details in doorways, windows, and landscapes. She taught us about perspective, color, and various other art techniques which we later used to create our very own masterpieces. She also introduced us to new tools and materials that we had not used before. Also, I really enjoyed the fact that Christiana takes the time get tailor the class to meet you where you are in terms of your artistic background and interests. The class will be so much fun no matter what your skill level may be. I am looking forward to using what I learned in my own classroom. I will definitely be back for another class in the near future! Thanks Cristiana and Fernando for your hospitality and talent!"
