One of the May 2016 painting  groups at Cristi Fer Art Studio in San Miguel de Allende What a great month to be in San Miguel de Allende! A little hotter then usual, in the upper 80's. Less rain to speak off! May it's a month full of flowers, events, every weekend it's a celebration, parade, music concerts, mariachi, fireworks name it and it's going on. Some call it the low season, but for us at Cristi Fer Art Studio it has being a busy month. Working on new paintings both Fernando and I have being putting a lot of time in the studio. The class especial the One Painting in One Day, Doors of San Miguel, has being well attended, and some of the participants returned more then once bringing friends and family members. Next week, Monday May 30 we will start a week long Expressionist Painting workshop. And we still have 2 spots, in case you are interested! Thank you for visiting our website!

The Mexican heritage or Maestro Gonzalez is undeniable in the Mayan inspired mixed media paintings on paper, while Mrs. Marinescu is expressing the Mexican experience through a personal perspective. Just 3 blocks from the main plaza, the gallery and art studio is located on one of the little streets connecting the North and South of San Miguel, Hernandez Macias 34 A.

Two weeks intro to sketching and watercolor plein air

Image
We love to receive our participants’ suggestions, and add new programs to our existing classes and workshops. As some of you have mentions, one week of sketching and painting is not enough, since San Miguel de Allende has so much to offer. And one month may be a long time for some. So we created a new 2 workshop. This is ideal for beginner to intermediate artists who want to build the habit of urban sketching and plein air watercolor painting. During the first week we'll focus on understanding the principles of sketching, then practicing it around town. We noticed that are many interested in sketching but all the sketch crawls are for individuals who already know how.   So we created an introductory program to take the fear out of sketching. Second week is focused on introduction to watercolor plein air. You will introduce you to the basics of watercolor, and then the rest of the week we'll paint out and about the studio. The cost is $750 USD for the t
