CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

Absolutely excellent. I was given a lovely camera as a present two years ago but had no idea what to do with all the complex options it came with. So I had hardly used it. After just a couple of hours on this course I had learnt so much that I am planning trips just to take my camera out. There was lots of personal attention from Karla and loads of ideas of simple things to try that were really effective.

What features did you like about the teaching style of Karla Darocas?
*   Easy to understand but inspiring. Lots of personal attention in a small group.

Would you recommend Karla Darocas teaching and events to others?
* Absolutely and I already have!

CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP


I have been to Karla's Fine Arts Lectures on Picasso and Dali... Hope some day to have one about Sorolla. The Creative Photography was a very nice experience and of course I learned new things... By meeting other people doing "the same" you always learn something new... Yesterday, I learned from Karla to see the things different... I loved it...

CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

The notes and lecture that Karla started the morning with were most instructive. I have become more familiar with my camera, which was my aim in taking the course. Holding the course at Montgo Verd was an inspired idea - there was no shortage of subjects to photograph.

Karla's teaching style is informal, well planned, thoughtful. I would recommend Karla Darocas.

GOYA * ROOTS, REVOLUTION & ROMANTICISM

I learned how much I really didn't know! Goya, the last of the old Masters and introducer of the moderns. A private man with emotional and health battles culminating in his deafness which introduced an era of his art which showed his despair and bleakness of the world surrounding him whilst at the same time giving a glimmer of the hope waiting patiently in the shadows.
I cannot wait for the second half of this lecture. Karla brings these artists to life with emotional tales that make you both weep and laugh as you live your life with them.

What elements did you like about the teaching style of Karla Darocas?
* Originality and fervour
Would you recommend Karla Darocas teaching and events to others?
* Yep!

GOYA * ROOTS, REVOLUTION & ROMANTICISM

The Goya lecture was about composition and how to read a painting. Besides the clear explanation on the techniques of fine art Karla gave a top rated art history class on Goya and his era in Spain. This background information certainly enriched the understanding of the themes in his paintings. It was a joy and a privilege to assist such a well prepared and also fun presentation. I recommend the lectures of Art Teacher Karla Darocas.

What elements did you like about the teaching style of Karla Darocas?
* Knowledge presented with a sense of humour.

Would you recommend Karla Darocas teaching and events to others?

PICASSO IN PARIS * PUBLIC LECTURE JANUARY 2017


What did you learn?
 * Even if I don't understand the painting form I can understand the emotion.

What features did you feel were beneficial in this event?

Thankfully, Karla has shown me that isn't necessarliy important as to the why, but more importantly look at the painting and absorb the emotion.

* Enthusiam

Would you recommend Karla Darocas teaching and events to others?
