In the drawing course we begin by learning to observe reality as a visual phenomenon.

We work on understanding that the line is the constructive element and that this is superimposed in order to create tracing lines, gradations, tones, volume and shape.

We similarly conceive the distribution, proportions and the composition in order to help the student gain mastery over the different techniques, mediums and materials.

The learning process continues towards the interpretation of reality which will allow the student to later be able to create their own work.


The course begins by learning to observe visual reImage of Fine Art Courses in Barcelonaality, light, color and composition. The understanding of color theory (cold and warm colors, primary, secondary and complimentary colors, etc.) and practice working with a palette give the student knowledge of different techniques, mediums and materials, from how to prepare amounted canvas to secrets to painting and its effects.

The learning process continues towards the interpretation of reality which will allow the student to later be able to create their own work.


Level 1- Analysis of visual reality
Level 2- Interpretation of visual reality
Level 3- Free expression

The course begins with understanding drawing, color and composition. This course is divided into two parts: first, there are intensive workshops on technique such as digital and traditional techniques, and following that there are project workshops that present the students to the different areas in which illustrationis used (reports, press, magazines, advertising, personal projects, etc.)

The illustrator is given technical resources such as how to use color, composition and shapes, as well as resources to find a mode of “expression” through which to tell a story.

These are classes in which students will be given the opportunity to work on the full creative process of a project, from the intial idea, research and experimentation, to the creation of the images before being printed.

The sculpture course begins with understanding concepts of space and its visual expression, appreciating three dimentional shape, creating from negative and positive space, from adding to substracting, discovering the textures of different materials, etc.

The different sculpting techniques that are practiced give the student knowledge of diverse materials that, depending on their characteristics, can be modeled, cut, welded, etc.

The learning process is developed with projects and scale models made before the creation of the sculpture, studying the human body through expression as well as surroundings, creating volume and defining space.

The learning process continues towards the interpretation of reality which will allow the student to later be able to create their own work.

Drawing course for tattoo artists

Picture of Fine Art Courses in BarcelonaThe drawing and design course for tattoo artists is aimed at students and professionals of tattoo art. The class is ideal for individuals seeking to create their own designs, improve their drawing skills and develop their own style.

We will begin our introduction to drawing from the point of synthesis and the differences in styles. In particular, we will study different cultures and ethnicities for artistic influence, such as Japanese and Polynesian designs, motifs, bordering and patterns.
We will practice with brush strokes, names, letters, etc.

We will also delve into the study of the human body, portrait, animals and flowers. An academic and realistic approach to these themes will allow us to go deeper into the study of proportions, composition, shading, color, texture, and the most appropriate techniques for creating tattoos.
