One week acrylic painting workshop at Cristi Fer Art Studio in San Miguel de Allende

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

Sisters painting workshop week at Cristi Fer Art Studio

Image
Just completed a week workshop with two sisters who's travels brought them to Mexico. They wanted to fulfill their dream of painting together and learning new techniques. One a beginner the other an intermediate painter. This workshop was not on our schedule but we love to be flexible as much as possible. So we designed a workshop just for them and their painting goals. The results speak for themselves! What a delight to work with such talented and charming ladies! If you too plan ti travel to San Miguel de Allende solo or with family and friends, and you have specific painting goals, contact us in advance and we will do our best to accommodate your travel dates and painting goals. After a lifetime of painting, art degrees and teaching adults for about 27 years, the 2 of us Fernando Gonzalez and myself Cristiana Marinescu can teach any level of experience.

Painting workshops in San Miguel de Allende all year around at best prices for all levels

Many have asked us how we can keep our workshop prices so low! Yes, one week painting workshop starts at $650.00 including materials, and we only work with small groups no bigger then 12 in the case of Plein air workshops (COST $750.00) The studio workshops are even smaller in size. You notice several tour companies advertising workshops in Mexico and even in San Miguel de Allende for $1500 and up and this cost does not include materials. So how we, successful and experienced painters with over 27 years of teaching experience, can keep our cost so low? We do not have overhead! One of the major reasons it is the fact that we do not use a 3 party organizer YOU need to pay We live in San Miguel de Allende. YOU do not need to pay our transportation, accommodations and food! We do not rent workshop space! You paint in our personal bright and spacious studio. Extra Bonus! We provide all the acrylic paints, brushes, palette knifes, etc. NOTE: Same intermediate and adva

One Painting in One Day painting workshop for all level of painting experience attension returning participants!

Cristi Fer Art Studio, founded by Mexican painter Fernando Gonzalez and artist Cristiana Marinescu, started offering the One Painting in One Day workshops in Riviera Maya, Mexico in 2008. Every year they added new topics and twists to the concept. Experience painters and teachers, they constantly improve and update their workshops, adding new elements for returning students and advance  painters. "Just arrive with an open mind and be willing to make mistakes. If you always wanted to ENJOY painting, NOW is the time!" Maestro Gonzalez is emphasizing to students. If one has taken the Doors of San Miguel workshop, or intro to Plein Air, or any other workshop and consider taking it again, remember, it is more to learn (such as practicing your brush stoke, palette knife, applications of value, composition, perspective, etc.) The instructors will help you improve and evolve each session, even when attending the same workshop two or three times. A new painting will be b

What our workshop participants say:   "There are not enough words to express my gratitude and joy in the week I spent with Cristi and Fernando at their studio and school. If you have any interest in painting, do yourself a favor and book classes with them! I was recommended to them by a good friend who had taken a few classes last summer. When I decided to go to San Miguel de Allende for a spiritual, soul-filling journey, it made sense for me to seek them out as part of my experience. If you are looking to travel (or return) to San Miguel, you already know that it is a city filled with art and vibrant color. Cristi and Fernando provide their students with the opportunity to really observe and respond to the city's artistic soul. They offer "one painting a day" courses at extremely reasonable rates, especially as they provide all the materials, step by step instruction (tailored to your experience level), and you get to go home with your masterpiece! They are
