PICASSO IN PARIS * PUBLIC LECTURE JANUARY 2017


"I learned new facts about Picasso life and his interest in modern scientific discoveries. I also appreciated the comments about Picasso paintings in relation with specific artist life situations, explanation how other modern artists, people and in general atmosphere of Paris made impact on his works, how he was influenced by classical and primitive artefacts
Karla Darocas has an easy manner of talking.

- Genevieve & David Lawrence, Monte Pedrequer

"Even if I don't understand the painting form I can understand the emotion. Unfortunately I never received an art education, which means that I've never had the opportuntiy to understand why.... this format, this colour, this blob!. 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. I wish when I was at school I had an art teacher like Karla who taught more that just form."

PICASSO IN PARIS * PUBLIC LECTURE JANUARY 2017


"This was an excellent and interesting lecture on Picasso, his works and relationships. There was so much that we did not know and so many paintings we had not seen before. The time flew by and just sorry there was not time for questions. We would love to know if/when Karla is giving the Dali lecture. We are only in Spain until the end of February. Sorry to have missed Sorolla!
Karla Darocas was
own to earth, fun and knew and understood her subject.
