Southern Spain

A Dream in Southern Spain: Carmona and Seville

Your Journey

Creative Residency: 

Summer 2025

Uncover Andalucia with a relaxing stay in Carmona, one of Spain’s oldest towns, set in the countryside right outside Seville. Learn through experience and immersion with a context in this insight vacation. Daily art workshops in painting, drawing, and artisan design stimulate your imagination and hands-on skill-building. Ignite your creative passions and regenerate your spirit.

Spend two magical weeks in the relaxed city of Carmona, right outside of Seville. Here, you will experience the richness of Southern Spain: where sensual traditions are as ancient as the sun-kissed earth, and where olive oil and wine, an intrinsic part of life, are enjoyed throughout the day. Carmona, an ancient and quiet town, is right outside of Seville, the setting for most of the world’s well-known operas, including The Barber of Seville and Carmen.


Art Immersions Carmona is set at a beautiful historic property right in the city center so that we may participate and integrate into the community in meaningful ways. We have studio space, courtyards, and exhibition rooms, with ample time to explore this welcoming Andalusian city. Each day, you will wake up to a lovely breakfast at the hotel and, depending on your course of study, have class or head to the studio. Our meals are shared dining experiences set at the hotel and in local restaurants. Multi-course dinners encourage you to relax and take time to enjoy the exquisite local cuisine.


There are day trips into Seville, known for its incredible architecture, along with Cordoba, famous for its mosque-cathedral and charming labyrinthian neighborhoods. The quiet and quaint setting means you can make and learn in peace—observing ancient structures and scenes while listening to courtyard waterfalls and the sounds of local life.
