Didactic Area


Developing our creative side can be tremendous fun and therapeutic. We just need some guidelines to follow to acquire technical knowledge; It is easier and more comfortable to master the environment in which we work if we have a little help to express ourselves. So, therefore this must begin with a teacher-led classes.

Exposición Centro de Mayores 2010


The objective of this workshop is to impart knowledge of the various means of pictorial expression through different techniques. Delving into what students want (eg., Oil, drawing, watercolor, etc. … ..). Developing themes throughtout the classes, proposing new challenges and achieving results which are materialised at the end of course exhibition.


Since they are interactive sessions between student and teacher, it is important that practical learning is mixed with theory and examples to make it more fun. If we incorporate challenges such as contests, teacher-guided exhibitions and trips abroad; this can make a big workshop for our seniors.
