Open registration in painting, woodcarving, photography and Catalan for adults

The Formentera Offices of Culture and Education and Language Advisory Service are pleased to announce the island's wide-ranging autumn-winter offer of courses and workshops mixing leisure and education for adults.

Two perennial classics –Teresa Matilla's creation and painting workshop (l'Aula d'Art) and Aaron Keydar's woodcarving atelier– are back. Students in "the Art Classroom" (afternoons November to March, exact times TBA) will explore various painting techniques, creativity, personal growth and emotion. Aaron Keydar has offered his woodcarving workshop since 2014, and the latest round will take shape Tuesday and Friday afternoons from November to March.

This year also marks a return for photographer José Antonio Arribas's course in digital photography. The beginners' course will last twelve hours and run 21 to 30 November. Learning will be both theory-based and hands-on, with students learning a variety of photographic techniques both in and out of the classroom. The course is for people who want to get the most out of their reflex camera or work in depth with a range of photographic disciplines.

Classes are at the new Espai Cultural de Sant Ferran and islanders under 25, retirees and people with an accredited disability of 33% or more enjoy a 30% discount on course fees.

For its part, the Language Advisory Service offers free Catalan courses for adults. Signups start 28 September and run until 11 October.

Aspiring students can sign up early at the Citizen Information Office (Oficina d'Atenció a la Ciudadania, OAC) and, online, through the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC) starting 28 September.
