What workshop participants say about Cristi Fer Art Galley workshops in San Miguel de Allende 2018

Image
"I recently visited Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende on a 10 day solo trip. As a single woman traveling alone, I was excited to have a mix of structured and free time, and given SMA's history as an artist community, I was excited to try some painting classes while I was in town. I signed up for two one-day painting classes with Cristi Fer Art -- Abstract Painting 101 with Cristiana and Tequila Bottles with Fernando. Both were great fun! Both Cristiana and Fernando offered good foundational instruction around color theory, design, and technique, provided useful practice opportunities, and then let me loose to paint, while giving me tips and suggestions along the way. They answered questions, encouraged me, and made me feel comfortable. I also enjoyed chatting with them about their time in SMA and their experience as working artists and instructors. They both speak perfect English, but I also enjoyed practicing my Spanish with Fernando. All in all I would highly recommend

Latest review from painting workshop participant

Image
"We signed up for the five-day acrylic class, which run in the mornings M-F. Each day, Cristi had a different concept/technique to teach us. Starting from abstract warm ups and use of tools, then progressing to shading, perspective, and negative spaces. Both Cristi and Fernando are accomplished artists, each quite different in style, and it was a privilege to be guided through the creation of works by them. We created three final paintings, plus the warm ups. Classes are in studio, and they work with each individual in what one is interested in creating and one's ability. You work fast and furious, and in flash the week was gone. I'm thrilled with the result and have even more respect for artists and their knowledge. Never again will I say, "I can do that!" when I see an abstract, I can now really appreciate works not just for beauty, but the act of creation." July 2016, Melbourne, Australia

Great art activity in San Miguel de Allende

Cristi Fer Art Studio designed four One Painting in One Day distinctive workshops. Participants learn about composition, color and lots of hands on techniques. With easy to follow directions participants get great results, and in 3 1/2 hours finish a painting! Who can participate? Participants varied in age and experience, but if they love to paint everybody has lots of fun and surprising results. The youngest participant was 8 and was accompanied by her grand mother. Families with teens, couples of all ages and genders, girlfriends, retirees, single people, I think I covered all San Miguel visitors!
