What people say:

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!!!
