What you'll do

Welcome, everyone. Eleven years ago, I visited Barcelona and got so inspired by Pablo Picasso that, one year later, I decided to move to this beautiful city. You can come and visit my indoor or outdoor studio next to Gaudi's temple, the Sagrada Familia, and paint artwork in the style of Picasso. You won't be copying, but discovering the artistic part of yourself. Picasso is the ideal subject, as he was such a prolific and expressive artist. Through my method, I can make sure that everybody can paint a Picasso, even if you have zero painting experience. You will be amazed at what you can achieve.
Other things to note
As the studio is next to the Sagrada Familia, you can come by public transport—metro or bus—and it's a nice 20-minute walk from Plaza Cataluña and Las Ramblas.

After I graduated from the Art Academy in Maastricht, Netherlands, I was a teacher of art and art history in Amsterdam. I painted for an ex-master forger, where I studied the impressionists and expressionists, specializing in Picasso. I moved to Barcelona in 2007—discovering the city inspired me to create a brightly colored series of paintings that I will finish in 2020. Meanwhile, I teach art to children, and I am trained as a solution-focused coach.

We had a wonderful experience with Karlijn. We all had the impression that we couldn’t paint when we arrive and she pushed us and helped us achieve our full potential! I would strongly recommend this experience!!!

Para quien quiera vivenciar la pintura de Picasso , no como un cuadro expuesto en un museo, sino como una experiencia. Muy recomendable.

Wow, the painting class with Karlijn was one of the best things I’ve ever done so far! I learned so many new things about picasso, painting and also about myself, that’s really incredible! I am so glad I took this class, in fact, for me it was not just a simple painting class but it was like a life lesson for myself ☺️ Karlijn provides you exactly the right amount of support you need/want doesn’t matter if you have already painted before or not. Also her studio is totally cool! On the terrace you feel like a pure artist and also the cookies and tea make the experience complete :) If you go to Karlijn’s class you can be sure that you will have a lot of fun and learn also a lot about Picasso’s life, paintings and about yourself. You’ll see it will be 100% worth it ☺️ Thank you once again Karlijn, I’ll never forget this day ☺️

Amazing workshop and a great way to explore Picasso's artwork. Karlijn is friendly and very skilled, she gave a lot of her self during the workshop. I would highly recommend this workshop for curious minds.
