Spanish art is open and expressive. Dance, music, sculpture, and architecture communicate a wide range of the human experience. The idiosyncratic masterworks of Greco, the Golden Age of Velazquez, the art of Goya, and the innovative works of Picasso, Dali and Miró are wide-ranging and powerful. We offer various courses in art and design in Spain. 

Spain is known for painting, pottery, and leatherwork. We will offer workshops with local masters. We offer various courses in art and design at our castle in Carmona, including Architecture & Design, Music & Composition, Theatre, Drawing & Painting, and Book Design. Our group will travel to museums and cultural sites to understand the broad historical context of Spanish art. 

Using the castle as exhibition space, site-specific course space and an innovation platform, we aim to make a variety of work, sharing and exchanging perspectives, informed by the past and present. Cross-course critique and dialogue between students and professionals is an essential component of our horizontal platform. Risk taking and hard work are encouraged and nurtured. Study contemporary and traditional methods of design and art. Learn to paint, draw and design. Return home with a body of work produced, and broadened cultural perspective.
