Making Art on Location:
The Landscapes, Histories and Cultures of Mallorca

Mallorca is a small island and can be easily traversed. It is a cartographer’s dream of rugged mountains and vertiginous cliffs, hidden coastal bays and inlets, vast fertile plains, dense forests, winding roads and narrow byways. The island offers a constellation of contrasts: epic vistas, serene white sand beaches, historical ramparts and ruins, hamlets of quiet charm and distinction.

The rural and urban topography of Mallorca is the vocabulary of evolution, of successive generations that have given shape and structure to the island. They are the historical sculptors, contemporary stewards and guardians of influence that continue to shape this culturally rich, diverse, kind and beautiful land.

Montserrat’s home base is the PDF Academia in Porreres, which is outfitted with workstations, printers, a projector for critiques, interior and rooftop studios. The majority of the time spent on the island will be devoted to working on location. Each day students will have time and access to the school to back-up any electronic work, write, work, and reflect on the days’ events and experiences.

Students stay at the Santuari de Monti-Sion, a former 14th century monastery at the top of a mountain in the municipality of Porreres, east of Palma.
