GOYA'S GHOST AGAIN * Tuesday, April 29th * 10:30am

Pin It
Please note that the art history film - Goya's Ghost will be shown again on Tuesday, 29th of April * 10:30am *  in a different classroom with different equipment.

Everyone who attended on the 15th of April who sadly missed the ending due to computer problems, can see the film again and the ending. It is a very complex film, so a second viewing is a good way to catch all the fine details.

PLEASE EMAIL - info@SpainLifestyle.com - to let me know if you wish to attend. FREE of Charge - of course. I hope you will come again. I felt so badly when the computer crashed and we could not share the ending of the film together.

That was a splendid cultural outing to Alicante city with Karla Darocas - teacher of art! We went to the replica of the Spanish Galleon: 'Santisima Trinidad' in Alicante harbour with coffee on the top deck, then on to see the Palm Sunday/ Easter procession in the city centre, off to the Gravina Museum of Fine Arts, then to the Basilica Santa Maria in the very heart of the Santa Maria neighbourhood and last but not least visiting the Alicante Museum of Contempory Art.

We finished on a romantic and authentic square having a delicious midday meal ( yes, with paella) and after a walk over the famous Rambla of Alicante made it back safely to Benitachell. 

What a beautiful Sunday!

SOROLLA EXHIBIT * PAINTINGS ABOUT JAVEA * OPENS TO RAVE REVIEWS IN ALICANTE

Pin It
According to the MUBAG blog (Fine Arts Museum of Alicante) the Sorolla exhibit is a big hit!

This exhibition is important because it represents the Marina Alta area.

Sorolla and his family spent their vacations in Javea - as do many millions of tourists. He found it full of life, light, grapes and raisins, water wheels, sun, surf and sea. His art works help us all to imagine Javea at the turn of the century.

Is anyone interested in taking a class trip to see the works of Sorolla's Javea - and then lunch?
