Learn how to develop a painting from your urban sketches

Join us in one of the scheduled workshops
Art Adventure offered every second week of each month in San Miguel de Allende by Cristi Fer Art Gallery and Workshops, or bring your own group  of 4+ and we will customize an Urban Sketching workshop just for your group.

Learn the difference between drawing and sketching, learn how to sketch like a pro (not cartoonist style) implement composition in a simple sketch, catch the flavor of the place, practice observation through the eye of an artist.

Instructor: Cristiana Marinescu, trained and practiced architectural design, psychology and art.
Bringing it all together she make it easy for the beginner to gain confidence and enjoy the practice. The experienced artist can learn new way of "looking" and applying the sketch in painting. Along the way we'll take photos "foot notes" for the feature painting.

"Two of my friends and I recently took the Art Adventure class with Cristiana. Our experience was incredible! Cristiana took us around town to see the beautiful character of San Miguel while teaching us to look for interesting details in doorways, windows, and landscapes. She taught us about perspective, color, and various other art techniques which we later used to create our very own masterpieces. She also introduced us to new tools and materials that we had not used before. Also, I really enjoyed the fact that Christiana takes the time get tailor the class to meet you where you are in terms of your artistic background and interests. The class will be so much fun no matter what your skill level may be. I am looking forward to using what I learned in my own classroom. I will definitely be back for another class in the near future! Thanks Cristiana and Fernando for your hospitality and talent!"
