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

The court yard, so customary to most San Miguel businesses give us some extra space to display large art work. The gallery space  is bright and inviting and the art work, even the abstracts, are inspired by San Miguel! We offer a great variety of sizes, paintings on canvas, canvas board and paper.  We also have note cards and photography of the city's doors and characteristic views. If you visit or if you have a San Miguel home don't miss the gallery!

First month at the new location of Cristi Fer Art Gallery and Workshops was a great success! November 2017 some painting workshop participants showing off their painting in the Cristi Fer Art Gallery So of the happy faces of our workshop participants in one the November workshops 2017. One participant commented: " I recently took an art class at Cristi Fer Gallery in SAN Miguel. Every day Cristiana and Fernando offer a different type of class, and I chose to paint the doors of SAN Miguel. Anybody familiar with SMA knows that most doors there are beautifully carved and sometimes very colorful. Fernando was an awesome teacher and very patient, too, considering I had never taken an art class in my life although I am 68 years old. I'm very fond of their styles of painting and even bought two of their pictures to complement my own. When I return to SAN Miguel next summer, I will surely take another type of class with them. The whole experience was enjoyable and fulf
