My name is Xavier Denia, founder of Barcelona Atelier.
Since I was young, I have been very interested in the relation between art and education: I believe it is fundamental in our culture to create a better society.
In our academy, we really want to teach the realists artistic spirit, with contains that:
We teach our students not just the classic techniques of the masters, but also the way to understand life through patience, respect, sensitivity and constant work as a part of an artistic and personal growth.
We want to make the academy a constitution offering our students a place where they can learn and share with other students as well as local artists. By sharing their knowledge, they will increase their sense of responsibility and self concept.
We will encourage and motivate our students to become conscious of the fact that with efforts and working hard, they can achieve their goals.
And last, we would like our school to contribute to the educational system of our country, graduating students with a solid basis on art and values.
Following the teaching techniques of the ancient masters from Italy, France and Spain of the 19th century, Barcelona Atelier of Realist Art offers the opportunity to learn from the ancient masters.
