The work of the artists here is interesting and colorful. We had visited Fabrica de Aurora earlier in the day, and it was refreshing to see bright colors again.

Thank you for visiting our gallery! San Miguel is full of life, color, music, flowers and cheerful people. We hope that our paintings reflect it!

I signed up for a one day acrylics painting class, which Fernando taught and it did exactly what I hoped, reignited a long dormant love of drawing and painting. I immediately booked a 4-day class with Cristi for drawing and sketching. On the first day we discussed my love of watercolor painting and Cristi incorporated some time to review some basic principles of watercolor painting as well. The most challenging and fun part was sketching out in town. Under Cristi’s informative, but gentle guidance, I saw big improvements with each sketch. Whether you just want to dabble for one day or are looking for more serious instruction, you can’t go wrong at CristiFer Art.

I had the opportunity to visit San Miguel with two close friends just to take this class. I'm glad we did! Cristiana is an incredible artist and instructor. She is patient and meets her students where they are. She makes the most novice artist feel like Picasso. I have to admit, I can be a perfectionist at times but Cristiana helped me overcome moments of challenge in such a patient manner.

I feel like taking this class connected me even more to San Miguel. Taking walking trips down the most breathtaking streets and stopping along the way to take pictures and to sketch, felt like a dream. Inspiration was seen at every turn.

If you're visiting San Miguel, I highly recommend taking a class with Cristiana. You will not only fall in love with the art experience but you will with connect with your inner self like you never imagine doing.

Thank you Cristiana for your attentiveness and willingness to adapt our art experience to support our work as teachers. Can't wait to return!!!

It is my pleasure to "show off" San Miguel gems and explain them through my point of view/ of how can one draw it, sketch it or paint it.
Looking forward to continue to sketch and paint with you and your friends in the near feature!

Two of my friends and I recently took the Art Adventure class with Cristiana. Our experience was incredible! Cristiana took us around town to see the beautiful character of San Miguel while teaching us to look for interesting details in doorways, windows, and landscapes. She taught us about perspective, color, and various other art techniques which we later used to create our very own masterpieces. She also introduced us to new tools and materials that we had not used before. Also, I really enjoyed the fact that Christiana takes the time get tailor the class to meet you where you are in terms of your artistic background and interests. The class will be so much fun no matter what your skill level may be. I am looking forward to using what I learned in my own classroom. I will definitely be back for another class in the near future! Thanks Cristiana and Fernando for your hospitality and talent!

I recently took the Art Adventure class with Cristiana. My experience was phenomenal! Cristiana was patient and guided us to see San Miguel in a whole new way. She took us around the town and taught us how to see doors, windows and landscapes in an extraordinary way. She taught us the difference between drawing and sketching. She guided our group to create beautiful masterpieces on canvas. She taught us new techniques that i will be bringing back to our classroom. I am definitely looking forward to another class in the short future!
