IN THE HEART OF PALMA:
The Quart Creixent Taller d'Art is located in the center of Palma, near the Town Hall and the Cathedral. A very narrow street but a very spacious workshop. Located on the ground floor of a Baroque house, with a large window overlooking the garden of the property, peace and light of the study make the work a pleasure.
The classes are devouted to a reduced number of students for better individual tuition. You can leave your paints and current work in the atelier. With this very individualized approach the classes are as profitable to the unexperienced who have never before picked up a brush as for those who are already experienced. It also allows the space for those who have not got it at home togehter with the advantage of progressing side by side with other artists and the guidance of the teacher when needed.
You have to come to the church of Montesión. Standing wiht the temple at your back, is the alley that you have right in front. By Bus: the nearest stop (4 min.) is next to the petrol station at the end of the avenues, near the sea.

We give courses for professional or as a way of developing creativity and personal growth. Thus, the school of painting and drawing is meant for anyone who likes art and wants to enter the world of the pencil, chiaroscuro, color and self-expression, allowing to capture his inner restlessness or for anyone who wants to improve technique at an advanced level. The courses are individualized covering all types of artistic techniques and drawing from the graphite, charcoal, pastel, acrylic, oil, watercolor, collage, mixed media, etc. Expressive styles span the contemporary art both abstract and figurative. We work on an introduction to abstraction as personal language, or if the student has a figurative sensibility we guide him so that he can do it with dominance, security and modern perspective.
