Art in Barcelona

On our social and cultural programme, we have a number of events that will interest you if art is your thing.

One is our "Picasso's Barcelona" walk (and don't miss the Picasso Museum !), another is the trip to the amazing MNAC collection.

Do come along with us!

The arts workshops

Painting ceramics

Decorate a porcelain dragon figure (designed by Gaudi), fired at 1200º C. Gaudi's decorative mosaic technique is also explained in detail.


Following a demonstration of the art of 'throwing' a pot on a wheel, produce a bowl, plate or jug of your own.


We focus on how to make sculptures appear well balanced and dynamic and you then make a Picasso-style Spanish bull.

When can you begin?

Start on any Monday, as on our intensive Spanish courses.

As shown on the course calendar, classes will start on the Tuesday if the Monday is a national holiday.

Not available last week of July and during the month of August.
