Art Trip Spain

dates to be determined
call (800) 611.4789 (e.s.t.)

From Baroque to the early 20th century; from El Greco to Dali; from Baroque to Surrealism.  For 14 full days, we lead our group in Madrid, Barcelona, Granada, Toledo, Sevilla and Figueres. We make the necessary arrangements so we talk and exchange knowledge in the Prado, the Reina Sofia, the Thyssen, and the Picasso Museums. Elements of Islamic art and culture are parts of the curriculum while visiting the Alhambra and the Sevilla Alcázarar.

Our unique Art History/Seminar Tours are intended to students of all ages, lifelong learners and everyone interested in the arts; you do not need to be an art student. Our art trips usually last 14 days. They are a fine combination of museum visits, city exploration, lectures, meals and fun. We stay in small hôtels and pensione, and sometime we eat "on the go" (sur le pouce in French). We travel like the Europeans: by subway, by train; and we also walk a lot. Needless to say, participants return to North America overwhelmed by their icscis experience.

On schedule

From these cities, we will radiate to Toledo, Figueres and Granada.  In 14 days, you will see the master works of El Greco, Picasso, Dali, Velasquez, Bosch, Miró, Gris and much more; and learn on Renaissance, Baroque, Cubism, Surrealism, and much more!

    Since 1996, icscis walkthearts have been offering quality painting or art workshops and educational tours in France, Italy, Egypt, Spain, United States and Colombia. It is in Tuscany (around Montepulciano, Pienza and Cortona) that we paint in plein-air, learn and discuss, since the landscapes of the Val d'Orcia are just astounding and the quality of life, seducing.  Attended by hundreds of art lovers and artists from all around the world, mostly New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Ottawa and Australia, our painting courses and art history seminars are given to small group by professional artists and art historians. walkthearts.com also provides educational travel for high school, college and/or university students, or on a private basis.
