¡Qué experiencia única!
Jul 2021
What a magical (and wonderfully addicting) place! My love for Art VallARTa started as soon as I walked into Wine and Design night with Ernesto. We had such a lovely time chatting and painting together. After that, I tried out a handbuilding ceramics class with Georgia and was officially HOOKED. The history, the artists that work/live/teach there, the work that adorns every corner, Ernesto, Georgia, Alan, Jorge, Natalie, the students, the energy, the walk to/from (make sure you stop in to see Hector at the tequila shop hehe), the quaint little street it's nestled in... just absolute perfection. Art VallARTa was an unexpected part of my time in Puerto Vallarta and I am *SO* grateful for my experience there.

Thank you for welcoming and teaching me, reigniting my creative spirit, and giving me memories that will for sure last a lifetime.

MISS YOU GUYS ALREADY!!!!

Great time

I had a wonderful experience taking the Paper Mache Class. It was very fun. The instructor was warm and engaging. He made it easy and fun to lean a new art.
I highly recommend taking this class.

Wonderful Wine and Design
Apr 2021
Ernesto was very interested in making sure we painted a subject in which we were highly interested. Together we chose alebrijes, folk art inspired animal figures. This was our first experience with painting in acrylic, and had little painting experience at all. With his calm and reassuring guidance we finished projects with which we were very pleased. We will certainly return to the studio for classes with Ernesto and other offerings.

Superb experience
Mar 2021
We are most grateful to have found ART VallARTa in general and Veronica Rangel in particular. Everyone at the studio is welcoming and encouraging. The positive vibes cannot be missed. We are new to painting, and watercolor possesses unique challenges. Veronica guides her students with poise, grace, patience, and tremendous knowledge, in English and Spanish. Although we are beginners we have learned a great deal in a short amount of time. All our future visit to the town will include time spent at ValllARTa. If you don't have time for a class you may want to enjoy the gallery. There are many interesting installations and you are certain to meet lovely people.

AWESOME Expeience
Oct 2020
Signed up for beginning ceramics class. Alan helped me book the class. Jorge came and found me when I got lost finding the place (I'm technologically challenged with no sense of direction) and Rob welcomed me to me first class with a huge smile.

The studio has all Covid protocols in place, right down to Listerine in the water used to moisten the clay (kills germs on contact!). Rob was very patient, offered suggestions and guided me through my first project, making me feel like I actually could make something to be proud of. (vs the tray I made in elementary school that my mom had to pretend to like.)

Besides hand molding clay, they have wheel throwing classes, glass molding, bead making, painting, mosaic classes. And 9 apartments above the studio available to rent. If I didn't already live in Vallarta, I'd be moving in!!

Totally awesome day. Made my week

The ceramics instructor was incredibly rude
Mar 2020
If you go forget the ceramics studio. The instructor so rude I couldn't believe it. He needs to be fired!

Hello. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I heard about your visit from students and the instructor. Your visit made multiple artists and the chief instructor very uncomfortable. You were touching artist's works that were in process. We have a very respectful policy in our studio not to touch anyone else's artwork. Our principal ceramic instructor is a very respected artist and a sought after encouraging teacher for beginners and very advanced artists. Sorry if you did not realize how he was protecting artists' works. I understand that maybe you were not aware of the delicacies and of the process of making ceramics and made a simple mistake touching the work. If you were one of the artists in the studio you would have understood the concern.

Fantastic experience
Feb 2020
We love to do something different on vacation and make it a priority to attend a cooking class wherever we vacation. We booked this cooking class before we traveled to PV based on the prior reviews and pics and knew we would not be disappointed. We had the best time with Ruben and Nathalie. We have a new appreciation for the local flavor of Puerto Vallarta. For a personal, fun experience we highly recommend.

Silencing your inner critic... Acrylic painting class with Ernesto Guerra
Jan 2020 • Solo
I was so very lucky today to have the opportunity to paint under the direction of Ernesto Guerra! A wonderful artist and instructor who taught me about color and technique along with the value of patience during the creative process. In 3 hours thanks to Ernesto, I gained renewed passion for art and greater confidence! I’ll be back, however, I know I’ll always hear his words of encouragement as I paint... telling me to not be so hard on myself, to use bold confident strokes and to reject the word mistake while creating. Gracias Ernesto!

Dear Alice, What a nice review. You have such a good spirit. You and Ernesto were a great combination... plus having a palm tree across the street to paint! Really liked the paintings you both did. We look forward to having you back in the studio! Nathalie

Natalie & Ruben welcomed us into their beautiful home with stunning views. The salsas we made were authentic family recipes, as was the sangria. A fun filled and delicious afternoon!
