Cristi Fer Art Gallery in San Miguel de Allende 2017 We love to share some of your comments about our workshops! Here is a note from TripAdvisor left in Spring.  "A piece of San Miguel captured on canvas in a single session!" May 6, 2017 Reviewed by 221happytraveler "In mid-April this year I took Fernando's four-hour workshop in acrylic painting. Although I had painted in the past, I learned many useful things about color and technique and gained a lot of self-confidence in the use of the medium. Fernando is a highly organized and results-oriented instructor. Students work in a large, well-lit space where all the materials are meticulously laid out before each class. Students pick a photo of a building fa├žade in San Miguel from several hanging on the wall, and Fernando takes them through the process of creating a realistic painting based on the photo. I was quite impressed by two things in particular:  (a) Fernando's ability to break down the process

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

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
