Art museums

If you are interested in art, Barcelona has some great art museums.

The Picasso Museum and the Miró Foundation are possibly already on your must-see list, but don't miss the Fundació Tàpies, the CaixaForum and the 1000 years of art at the MNAC, among others.

The arts workshops


This course starts by looking at different types of clay and covers a number of techniques such as developing different forms (tiles, plates, vases,) and using a variety of glazes at different temperatures.

Clay sculpture

The course looks at how different forms and styles can be developed and also considers the variety of finishes that can be applied to each sculpture.

Drawing and painting

Using a variety of materials such as charcoal, water colours, oil paints or acrylics, the course focuses on such issues as how to produce light and shadow, how to develop perspective and build volume, how to paint portraits, etc.

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.
