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

"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

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 façade 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

Latest review on TripAdvisor Eyes of San Miguel Acrylic on Canvas, 47" x 31.5" By Cristi Fer "After visiting many art studios in SMA, I was very impressed with the originality and quality of Cristi Fer and her artistic style and imagination. So much so that I commissioned her to create a "One of a kind piece" (oil on canvas) that combined the theme of a Dia De Los Muertos Celebration and a bike race peloton. The result is truly a unique work of art that never fails to elicit comments of praise and appreciation. Her downtown studio not only offers a large number of original paintings but she also has an excellent reputation for her painting classes, at all levels."

New paintings at Cristi Fer Art Studio in San Miguel de Allende Mexico

Every morning I walk my dogs, and as I do, I look around and take in my surroundings. Most of the time I discover new exciting subjects. Lately... in the last 10 years I have focused on the architecture of the town I lived in. At times introducing people in the market, mariachi, vendors.  But the morning walk takes my attention to the shadows. We stroll and I take my time.  I think it is essential for an artist of any genre to internalize the world. For me it is a detached enjoyment.  It is like floating in the ocean.  No effort, no directing, no  projecting. Just being with the shapes and shadows, with the light and color.
