Latest review on TripAdvisor Eyes of San Miguel Acrylic on Canvas, 47" x 31.5" By Cristi Fer "After visiting many art studios in SMA, I was very impressed with the originality and quality of Cristi Fer and her artistic style and imagination. So much so that I commissioned her to create a "One of a kind piece" (oil on canvas) that combined the theme of a Dia De Los Muertos Celebration and a bike race peloton. The result is truly a unique work of art that never fails to elicit comments of praise and appreciation. Her downtown studio not only offers a large number of original paintings but she also has an excellent reputation for her painting classes, at all levels."

Latest review from painting workshop participant

"We signed up for the five-day acrylic class, which run in the mornings M-F. Each day, Cristi had a different concept/technique to teach us. Starting from abstract warm ups and use of tools, then progressing to shading, perspective, and negative spaces. Both Cristi and Fernando are accomplished artists, each quite different in style, and it was a privilege to be guided through the creation of works by them. We created three final paintings, plus the warm ups. Classes are in studio, and they work with each individual in what one is interested in creating and one's ability. You work fast and furious, and in flash the week was gone. I'm thrilled with the result and have even more respect for artists and their knowledge. Never again will I say, "I can do that!" when I see an abstract, I can now really appreciate works not just for beauty, but the act of creation." July 2016, Melbourne, Australia

One Painting in One Day painting workshop for all level of painting experience attension returning participants!

Cristi Fer Art Studio, founded by Mexican painter Fernando Gonzalez and artist Cristiana Marinescu, started offering the One Painting in One Day workshops in Riviera Maya, Mexico in 2008. Every year they added new topics and twists to the concept. Experience painters and teachers, they constantly improve and update their workshops, adding new elements for returning students and advance  painters. "Just arrive with an open mind and be willing to make mistakes. If you always wanted to ENJOY painting, NOW is the time!" Maestro Gonzalez is emphasizing to students. If one has taken the Doors of San Miguel workshop, or intro to Plein Air, or any other workshop and consider taking it again, remember, it is more to learn (such as practicing your brush stoke, palette knife, applications of value, composition, perspective, etc.) The instructors will help you improve and evolve each session, even when attending the same workshop two or three times.
