This 2 day workshop was a treasure trove of techniques, design, color mixing and so much more. Using photos to create unique abstract works of art this is an amazing way to be creative and artistic without needing to draw anything! Jane is a great teacher and so much talent and information to share. I would highly recommend her workshops to anyone who would like to experience new forms of artistic expression without needing any previous artistic experience or skills. Really really FUN.

Classes at the San Francisco Gallery are really fun and informative. I highly recommend them because what you go home with (your paintings) will be much better looking than you thought and fit to display in your home. Susan even helps with the framing!

The gallery itself is lovely and a great place to spend time.

We dropped our kids off with Susan for her acrylic painting class and they came back with finished works of art! We found her to be very engaging and fun, yet knowledgeable... sharing tips and tricks along the way. Based on the student art we saw, she can work with all levels.

I suggest you attend the class with an idea of what you want to paint, and if you want to do something larger or more complex, consider taking more than one 3-hour class.

When I signed up for this two day workshop I wondered how will Jane fill the time? Well she filled it with enthusiastically sharing a wealth of information, clearly explaining multiple techniques, resources, ideas and more. There were people in class who had never created art, and her crash course in the basics (my title) was substantial enough to jumpstart any beginning, aspiring artist, and a great refresher for those who have decades of experience, (and think they know everything, like me!).

Jane clearly loves creating and teaching, and that makes this class a joy. I also met wonderful people who felt the same way I did. We ALL walked away with finished pieces and personally, I just want to keep creating, inspired by what happened in that class. If you have the impulse to take ANY of her classes, my advice would be - act on it. You won't regret it.

This 2-day Abstract Painting class on layering was a great opportunity to loosen up and learn about layering methods and media that were new to me. Jane is so skilled, as a painter and as a teacher; she kept up the pace for the class and was ready with helpful demos and suggestions. Prior to class she had prepared materials, handouts, and work stations for each of the students. Having only 6 of us in the class meant more space to work, more sharing of materials and ideas. The class atmosphere was relaxing but encouraged experimentation (Jane urged us to move past the "ugly painting" stage). I highly recommend this class no matter which level of painter you are! Jane meets you where you are!

There is a reason Susan Santiago’s gallery is considered one of the flagship galleries in San Miguel de Allende. The gallery is located in Fabrica la Aurora, a converted textile mill. In addition to selling her own impressive work, Susan exhibits high quality art and sculpture from other local artists. Susan’s “Night Queen with her Dragonflies” transported me to thoughts of my mother who ADORED these mystical creatures. Karen Lee Dunn stunned me with her oil painting “Hat Vendor in the Jardin.” She captured the spirit of SMA. Too big for my little house, but I adore it. Jane Bingham’s sculptures are another aha moment. I can’t paint a lick, but I Do have a discerning eye.
If you stand at the front of Fabrica, Susan’s gallery is all the way to the right.
After your purchase, follow the path to Geek and Coffee where you can enjoy the garden and revel at your good fortune..
Susan also offers a variety of classes and workshops.

Jane Dill's Abstract Painting Class is fantastic. Jane is an accomplished painter, calligrapher and designer. Not all great artists can also be great teachers. Jane is also a great teacher. It was obvious from the beginning of the class that Jane puts a lot of time, thought and effort into this work. She was super prepared with content, materials and techniques.

I learned and tried things I had never done before. I felt free to create when I was inspired and also had Jane's support when I needed it. I ended the two day workshop with a number of finished pieces. I came away from the class inspired.

The Galeria SF studio in La Fabrica Aurora is a great space to work. We even had a wonderful studio assistant who made sure that we had everything we needed as we worked and who was also there to clean up our messes. And historic architecture, great art and good food are all around you at La Fabrica. Highly recommended.

Loved my class in Abstract Painting with Texture with Jane Dill at Galeria San Francisco at Fabrica Aurora. Jane is a great artist and superior teacher, She packed all kinds of tips and techniques into our 6 hour class and each of us walked away with our own unique art piece. Join in the fun!

Having visited all the galleries at the Design Center, our favorite was the Galeria San Fransisco. We loved the art work and well priced!! Mostly, we loved both Jane Dill and Robyn Cole's work so much so that we purchased several pieces. If you are visiting San Miguel and looking for artwork, I would highly recommend this Gallery.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We work so hard at the gallery trying to make our visitors feel welcome. We also aim to price our art so it is affordable for all. All of our artists love the idea of their works hanging on someone's walls for all to see. We also want to encourage beginning collectors, so they too, can afford to add to their collections. I hope you enjoy your beautiful paintings by Robyn and Jane. Please come back and visit us again !!

What an experience it was to work with Rhoda for two three hour fast paced drawing drawing lessons! Not only is Rhoda a talented sketcher and characturist, she is a gifted teacher. She has a unique and very fun way of breaking the art of drawing into bite sized pieces and encouraging students to practice new ways to take their drawing to new levels in short practice sessions. After each timed exercise, she provides specific feedback…always emphasizing what went well and providing an idea or two about how the drawing could be further enhanced. As a beginner Likedrawer, I was surprised at how much I learned in just a few bowers…and delighted with how much fun I had along the way. The class was a highlight of my trip to San Miguel.
