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.

I also want to let you know that we are full time painters (teaching since 1989) and we teach because we enjoy to share what we love. Painting it's not a hobby or something we picked up after retirement.




The workshop is not a gimmick. We designed this workshop with the visitor and beginners in mind. 
- My goal is to help you understand the principals of design, basic drawing and color. 
- It is only 3.5 hour because we realized that many who always wanted to paint don't want to commit to taking a longer course and buying expensive art materials.
- Also many who are visiting want to take advantage of ALL San Miguel has to offer, and it's a lot to choose from.
This is not a paint a drink workshop. We believe that painting in it's own right it's a lot of fun. 
You can get a natural high from your flowing creative juices.

Thursday it's dedicated to an easy and fun technique of creating texture and the topic is a street view of San Miguel de Allende. No need to bring a photo, the reference is provided.
