Art Adventure

A week long art adventure in 

San Miguel de Allende
Workshop Schedule 2017

Experienced painters and facilitators, Mexican painter and muralist Fernando Gonzalez and Romanian artist and art therapist Cristiana Marinescu, offer an unforgettable week of painting and sketching vacation in San Miguel de Allende.
You will incorporate sketching, photography and studio painting,from your own sketches and photos!
Great adventure for your first visit to Mexico or San Miguel de Allende. This little town is full of excitement, music, color, parades and joy!

No experience needed. Experienced painters are also welcomed to attend.

We will start with 2 days of the basics of travel sketching and photography, continued by incorporating design and color into bright, exuberant painting created from your own reference! Learn and practice the entire process of creating one to three paintings characteristic of San Miguel de Allende and Mexico in general. You will work at your own speed, focusing on what is most important to you:
color mixing,
loosening up,
studies for larger paintings
capturing the moment

You have the option to take the workshop in English or Spanish if you wish to brush off on the native tang and customs.
