Guanajuato perspective, by Cristi Fer Acrylic on canvas gallery rapped 40 cm x 30 cm I love Guanajuato! It is one of my favorite Mexican cities! Every corner offers so much inspiration!

One Painting in One Day? How is it possible?

Image
It is possible when the instructors have over 25 years of teaching experience and teach because they LOVE it! Our approach to teaching is based on mentorship principals. We only work with small groups and individuals because we want to be able to give you lots of attention and direction. We have work with individuals at all levels, from novice to painters who show their art in US and Canada galleries. And 99% of the feedback we received was excellent! One painting in 3.5 hours to be exact, sounds too good to be true? Will I paint by numbers? Is it a gimmick? Is this a drink and paint workshop? Do I need to be an experienced painter? The answer to all this questions is NO. What will I learn? Beginners will learn about composition, color and technique. Intermediate will practice value, composition and perspective. Advanced  painters will have the opportunity to  brush  up on technique and consider new slants to their current art. All this principals are

Attention painters in search for their own voice

Image
Painting, collage, mixed media, sketching are forms of artistic expression many turn to  after retirement. I met many who took several workshops here and there, and the result is work that looks like their teachers paintings. My goal in this workshop is to help you identify your voice! If you are an intermediate painter looking to define your style,  abstract or realistic painter or want to improve on drawing, perspective, technique, contact me. I can help. We will identify your style and you'll learn how to express it consciously. Your work will become consistent and unique. I offer one week to one month workshops focused on supporting you.
