Larsen Academy

LARSEN is an art studio in Villajoyosa, Spain. It is a place where artists come to work or to attend art classes.

We have a spacious floor for painters to work and for people to attend painting classes. We also have a grand etching press on the first floor.

LARSEN art studio is a stones throw from the Mediterranean sea with almost 3 km of beaches. We feel lucky to work in the sun on one of our terraces, and inside with natural light flowing in from outside.
The town of Villajoyosa has a colourful Old Town, fishing boats leaving the harbour in the morning, which return in the afternoon, nice people and good restaurants.

It is a beautiful place where you can find great motives and inspiration.


What we do


People often visit our studio to paint. Some for a few days while visiting Villajoyosa and others for weeks or months. Beginners have the opportunity to get tuition by local painters. Intermediate and professional painters work by themselves. It is a good environment, where people share experiences and work together.


We have easels you can use for free and you can store your work with us while you are here. We have canvas, paint and brushes for sale.


You can pop in for one day for EUR 10,00.
You can buy a 10 day pass for EUR 75,00.
You can stay a month at a time for EUR 100,00.


If you have questions regarding a place to stay we have available apartments and we have referral
rates with local hotels.

In house artists

If you would like to stay for a longer period of time, we would like to hear from you. Hopefully we can help you find a place to stay within your budget and agree to a discounted long term price for you.
