Educational activities

Art workshops

In addition to the Picasso workshops that are run each year as part of the plastic-arts workshops, the Foundation now offers other workshops based on two artists whose work is exhibited: Miró and Perejaume. A workshop is also run on an important and appealing artist, albeit one that is not represented in the Foundation’s collection: Van Gogh. To complete the Foundation’s range of workshops is one based on a genre that it well represented this year within the museum - portrait and self-portrait work.
