One Painting in One Day it's not a gimmick

We at Cristi Fer Art Studio, offer our popular One Painting in One Day throughout June . I mention this because it was brought to my attention that some drawing/painting events offered by other artists in SMA, are discontinued through June. The One Painting in One Day workshop is offered Tuesdays and Thursdays. 9 AM to 12:30 PM Cost is $85 USD and includes all the materials and RT taxi from your condo/hotel to our studio. We are located in a beautiful villa with unobstructed light, 2 studios and a LARGE patio, in colonia Independencia.
