One week acrylic painting workshop at Cristi Fer Art Studio in San Miguel de Allende

Participant painting A recent review from July 2016 workshop participant. Thank you Jennifer!  "I took a week long painting class with my mother and sister at Cristi Fer studio. I had been to San Miguel in past but this class allowed me to appreciate San Miguel in a whole new way. With the guidance of 2 extremely talented artists/teachers, Cristi and Fernando, we were able to create paintings of typical San Miguel street scenes; in addition, to gaining a greater appreciation for and confidence in the artistic process. Some of the best souvenirs a person could ask for. I highly recommend taking advantage of what Cristi Fer studio has to offer for your next visit to San Miguel. It was a truly unique experience beyond the typical tourist activities. If you don't have time to take a painting class, you should consider stopping by the gallery and taking home one of their beautiful original artworks." Visited July 2016, USA

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

Image
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. A new painting will be b

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
