New abstract paintings at Cristi Fer Art Gallery and Workshops March 2019

Image
I enjoy a structured abstract that reflects and incorporated all elements of art. One favorite of mine is the negative space, relationship between shapes variety of lines and subdued contract of color. The following are some paintings that derived from the same subject. The titles are On the Way to Dolores 1 On the Way to Dolores 2 The drive between San Miguel de Allende and Dolores is about 45 min, on a narrow road meandering hills and small communities. The paintings can be viewed as depicting at least 2 different subjects in a microcosmic and/ or bird view perspective. 3.5 ft x 3.5 ft

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

Summer Painting Workshop attention teachers a great relaxing vacation in Mexico!

San Miguel de Allende 2016 San Miguel de Allende is one of the must visited town of Mexico! Tacked in between gentle rolling hills, adorned by charming Colonial architecture, narrow cobble stone streets, cheerful parades all year around, mariachi in the park, fantastic Mexican food, and well known hospitality, it is an ideal place all year around to run away from hit or snow blizzards. It is so much to do and enjoy here! We (Cristi Fer Art) are fortunate to have established our art studio and gallery in this enchanted town. We love to share this charm with you and make it even more by adding a painting workshop to your trip. We work with all levels of painting experience from none to well experience artists.

Last Summer in San Miguel de Allende painting at Cristi Fer Art Studio

Image
In the last week the weather got much cooler. About 80 degrees F and a bit cool in the morning and evenings. And some torrential rain at night. As I was thinking of how different this May 2016 in comparison with last year and working on the computer, I run across some last summer workshop photos. Here is one of them. I sure had a blast those 2 weeks of sketching and painting! If you are a beginner painter looking to gain confidence and learn new techniques, or an experienced artist looking to jump start their creative flow, consider spending one or 2 week of painting in San Miguel de Allende at our Crsti Fer Art Studio and Gallery. Summer is a great time to visit San Miguel.  Our Summers are not as hot as AZ or NM. The hit is dry so even 80 F don't feel terribly hot. If you are an art teacher or a teacher enjoying Summer break, looking for a relaxing painting holiday, this is the workshop for you! You can choose from attending 5 Paintings in 5 Days Art Adventure or Pai

The colors and energy of Mexico is so exuberant and inspiring!

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!
