What people say about One Painting in One Day at Cristi Fer Art Gallery and Workshops in San Miguel de Allende Mexico

Cristi Fer Art Gallery in San Miguel de Allende 2017
We love to share some of your comments about our workshops!
Here is a note from TripAdvisor left in Spring. 
May 6, 2017Reviewed by 221happytraveler
"In mid-April this year I took Fernando's four-hour workshop in acrylic painting. Although I had painted in the past, I learned many useful things about color and technique and gained a lot of self-confidence in the use of the medium. Fernando is a highly organized and results-oriented instructor. Students work in a large, well-lit space where all the materials are meticulously laid out before each class. Students pick a photo of a building fa├žade in San Miguel from several hanging on the wall, and Fernando takes them through the process of creating a realistic painting based on the photo. I was quite impressed by two things in particular: 
(a) Fernando's ability to break down the process into simple, straightforward steps, and 
(b) his respect for the student's work, in the sense that he never touches the student's canvas himself. Instead, he illustrates his points on a sheet of craft paper laid out on a table so that, in the end, what the student creates is truly his own work, not half his own and half the teacher's. This makes the students come away with a sense of achievement. ... The fee covers the use of paints and brushes plus the cost of one stretched canvas, and .... a class by a talented, experienced painter with a higher degree from one of Mexico's best schools of fine arts and a solid, didactic approach. The class is intended, above all, to have the students enjoy themselves while gaining familiarity with basic techniques and getting immediate results. Fernando is easy to talk to and is patient in answering questions. All of this enhances the experience. I highly recommend his workshop."
