What our workshop participants say:   "There are not enough words to express my gratitude and joy in the week I spent with Cristi and Fernando at their studio and school. If you have any interest in painting, do yourself a favor and book classes with them! I was recommended to them by a good friend who had taken a few classes last summer. When I decided to go to San Miguel de Allende for a spiritual, soul-filling journey, it made sense for me to seek them out as part of my experience. If you are looking to travel (or return) to San Miguel, you already know that it is a city filled with art and vibrant color. Cristi and Fernando provide their students with the opportunity to really observe and respond to the city's artistic soul. They offer "one painting a day" courses at extremely reasonable rates, especially as they provide all the materials, step by step instruction (tailored to your experience level), and you get to go home with your masterpiece!

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.
