About this Denia Art Workshop
This 3-hour workshop teaches how to make a sea ring, or wreath, from the inspiration of the Mediterranean Sea and the beautiful area of Denia. Together, I will help you create art with its found treasures, from sea shells and sea glass to broken ceramic pieces washed up on shore. The workshop is for adults, 18 years and older.
This first workshop is also inspired by, and provided for, the Ukrainian refugees in Denia and the Marina Alta area who are seeking some solace during this turbulent time in our world. With this in mind, only Ukrainian refugees are allowed to attend and there is no cost for the workshop (materials are also included). A huge thank you to Escuela Taller de Arte in Denia for generously donating their space for this workshop.
The final goal for this workshop is to have a finished sea ring that you can keep with you as your own piece of art inspired by the Mediterranean Sea here in Denia. And most importantly, to meet and experiment with fellow students, and learn and have fun creating.
Registration is required to attend and space is limited. To register for the workshop, please complete the form further below.
DONATIONS: We are asking for donations of sea shells and sea glass. If you are interested in making any such donations, please email us at [email protected].
Future workshops for other attendees will soon be available at later dates.

About the Instructor, Eric J. Trujillo
I am Eric J. Trujillo, an artist from the US living here in Denia, Spain. I have been drawing and making art my entire life. The most exhilarating thing about being an artist is sharing it with people. And another way I share my art is teaching others how it is made. This class will teach you some of my methods.
I enjoy the creative process and it’s fun making things. Art can remind you of your humanity. When you creatively self-express yourself it’s a liberating experience. Creating art can help us to see things in the world in many new and different ways. Being creative can encourage us in how we can live harmoniously with each other, enjoy ourselves, and stay connected.
My favorite quote is “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” – Picasso.
