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

View from Cristi Fer Art Gallery and Workshops in SMA Is it too cold or to much snow in your home town? Do you love to paint, or you are a beginner who wants to explore the joy of painting, are you a teacher taking a Winter brake or recently retired and looking for a possible place to  re locate? Look no farther! Taking a week or two of painting workshops, it's a good excuse to "run away" to Mexico for a little while. We are located in one of the most beautiful Colonial towns, The Heart of Mexico, as it's sweetly called by Mexicans. The weather is almost perfect, with mild winters and T shirt temperatures at noon. Temperate summers with the most beautiful starry nights. Every season is perfect in it's own right. It is easy to get around even if you do not speak a work of Spanish. The locals are friendly and there are many snowbirds and summer birds. At Cristi Fer Art Gallery and Workshops, we offer painting workshops for all levels, from none to experi

Cristi Fer Art Gallery new paintings August 2016

 Painting I just finished today, inspired by beautiful San Miguel de Allende and on my list to paint! At time I return several times to the same view every time I see it I notice something new or I want to emphasize something different, say the plants, or the building in the foreground, or the street out in the distance. But there are so many other new perspective that I want to explore, some more challenging then others. Some painters have a hard time deciding when to STOP. For me it is the opposite! As an expressionist painter I see the world in constant movement and changing in front of my eyes. As I am about half way into a painting I am already excited by the 3 to 5 other subjects percolating in the back of my mind. Capturing the ESSENCE of what I see and experience through my entire body represents expressing it with the LEAST amount of strokes.
