At the beginning of April, I had a workshop in Barcelona, Spain, at the Barcelona Atelier of Realist Art, founded by the artist Xavier Denia Valls. Although, during the past few years, I held a few workshops with other artists, and gave a number of lectures and demos, this was the first time that I conducted an intense 2 days’ workshop on my own. The first day included a lecture and a demo, while during the next day the students worked on their own pieces under my supervision and guidance.
The audience was relatively small – less ten 10 participants from Spain, Italy and Brazil. This turned out to be a good thing for I was able to give maximum attention to each student, which is crucial for the success of any workshop of this kind. The space was very well organized, the atmosphere inspiring and the students were enthusiastic and receptive, very inspiring, young talented people. All of that contributed to an unforgettable event and a successful workshop. I believe we all returned home energized, inspired end richer in precious experience.
