My mission is to create a welcoming space where you can experience outstanding fine arts classes. My cozy classroom comes alive with full-screen slides and captivating lectures, enriching your learning journey.
Join me on enlightening group excursions that combine education with exploration, and delve into my insightful educational publications that celebrate the magnificence of art. Stimulate your thoughts with my curated selection of art films, designed to spark creativity and introspection.
I am dedicated to nurturing your passion for the arts while fostering personal and intellectual growth.
In a teaching career spanning more than three decades, I have cultivated an unwavering dedication to igniting and nurturing a deep passion into the "love of learning".
After completing my academic career, I embarked on a transformative path in education by bringing my expertise to the field of "Continuous Learning"
Continuous Learning represents the relentless pursuit of intellectual growth that translates into an unwavering commitment to regularly updating and expanding one's knowledge.
As a fine arts lecturer and art historian specialising in Spanish art and architecture, I have the great privilege of imparting wisdom to my students.
Under my guidance, they embark on a journey to transcend the boundaries of understanding, interpreting, appreciating and ultimately enjoying without reservation the magnificent works of art by the great masters of art and the awe-inspiring grandeur of architectural marvels.
