BARCELONA WORKSHOPS gives the painter the ULTIMATE travel workshop and creative opportunity in one of the most exciting cities in Europe. Have you ever wanted to explore a beautiful place with paint, and yet the thought of where to go, how to organize it, and where to stay remained unresolved? We have been running outstanding workshops in Tuscany since 2000. We know how important it is to strike the perfect balance between art immersion, relax time, and seeing the important sites. And how important the right company is. Our trip to Barcelona has something for everyone, and combines seven days of pure Catalan cultural immersion, with four painting days, either in plein air or in studio. There are two full days of cultural visits to the most important sites in Barcelona's rich artistic heritage, evenings at Las Ramblas, or seaside at our art-themed hotel. We have thought of everything, and created this vacation in Barcelona to delight and inspire everyone.
We expect that the exposure to the rich influence of Barcelona's art will have a strong effect on our painting. Our instructors are experts at nurturing the talents of all level of painters. All classes are in English. Our sites include all the most powerful forces in Catalan' art; the Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, Casa Pedrera, and Casa Bajilo as well as the Joan Miro` foundation museum. You will be inspired beyond your imagination by this dynamic and well-organized city with extraordinary cuisine and ambience. We have chosen an ART-themed hotel get-away locale for our guests to stay so their trip is not only stimulating but relaxing as well.
