Read the latest comment:
"Cristi's painting class was the perfect addition to our girl friends getaway. We all came away with a better understanding of techniques and use of color. The studio is convenient and easy to find. With San Miguel de Allende being an artist's mecca... we became part of that community, if only for a few hours. Thank you Cristi!"
