    A must experience in Artful San Miguel!!
    San Miguel is an art colony and Susan Santiago is a very special part of that community. A brilliant teacher and artist with a kind heart and a wonderful sense of humor, she welcomes people to her gallery regardless of their skill set. She sent us all the way feeling like we have art in our soul. Susan’s on collection of art is extraordinary. Everyone should be visiting her gallery to take in her creations.

    Jane Dill's Mixed Media and Photography Class
    Jane Dill's class was a fun way to spend two days In San Miguel! Learning how to utilize my travel photographs to create a piece of art was invaluable and I can't wait to return home and continue to create more mementoes of my travels. Jane's instructions were very clear and she was there at every turn to guide us personally through the process. At the end of two days I left with two finished pieces of art! In addition, Jane emailed us a list of supplies as well as details of the process.

    Great Art and Fun Art Classes
    Galeria San Francisco is amazing. Not only does it feature exceptional art, but the art classes are fun and the pupils benefit from Susan Santiago's expert guidance. It's a fun thing to do whether you are a visitor or a resident of San Miguel de Allende.

    Jane Dill’s Mixed Media Photography class is awesome!
    Really happy I took this class. It was two days jam packed with instruction and creative abandon! Our small group of five allowed for lots of one on one attention and personalized guidance. Jane is very generous with her many years of knowledge and experience. From professional photographers to hobbyists, each of us upped our game. A good time was had by all:-)

    An Outstanding Experience!
    I have taken 2 of Jane's classes now and I highly recommend her services. She is a talented artist and teacher. She explains things on a basic level for easy understanding and also incorporates examples. She is gracious in sharing tips, secrets including techniques and tools. I will take more classes from her.

    Jane Dill abstract mixed media workshop
    I attended a mixed media abstract art workshop with Jane Dill. The workshop was for 2 days with all materials supplied and it was fantastic. It was a small class and so exciting to see the progress we all made as we made layers of textures with plaster and paints. I will definitely continue this.

    Jane Dill’s Mixed Media Art Class
    It was so fun taking Jane Dill’s mixed media art class. Jane is a thoughtful teacher covering many techniques in just a 2 day class. She has every supply you will possibly need and encouragement to go for it! Loved meeting the other students and sharing each individual’s vision and inspiration. I can see why so many students repeat her classes. So much to experiment with and different ways of accomplishing a unique piece of work to take home. Amazing how much information Jane covers and at a good pace with a nice lunch break to visit. Suzanne, Jane’s assistant is a real gem also. Keeps our supplies clean and always ready for creating! I highly recommend taking one of Jane’s classes…. It won’t be your last!

    Jane Dill - Texture/Abstract Painting... Super fun!
    I took the Abstract Texture workshop with artist Jane Dill. It was a busy day full of learning and fun- I learned a lot and will definitely play with these materials again in my future . Jane provided everything we needed and gave us materials lists so that we could continue on on our own. Can't wait to take another class here!

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.

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.

I recently completed a two day workshop with Robin. It was a wonderful experience on so many levels. Robin is an excellent teacher. I’ve taken many art workshops over the years - hers was one of the best in terms of clarity, pacing, fun, and learning. I especially appreciated Robin’s flexibility and her willingness to share her knowledge freely. Cold wax and oil paint is it interesting and forgiving medium. We had a great time learning some of the basics, and enough skills to move forward on our own. Thank you, Robin!

The cold wax and oil class taught by Robyn Cole was filled with energy, new ideas and the materials and space to explore. Robyn provides everything needed to learn about this fascinating way of painting in a positive and fast moving class for painters of all levels, experience and ages.I am looking forward to her next class

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.

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!

I have been attending acrylic painting classes taught by Susan Santiago, the owner of Galeria San Fransisco and a very talented artist in her own right.
The classes take place in the beautiful gallery, so one is surrounded by beautiful art that is so inspiring! They are so much fun and informative!
I so look forward to them every week.
I highly recommend visiting this gallery and/or taking an art class there!

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.

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.

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!
