Two workshops, one of paint and another one of sculpture are at your disposal, both at the Gallery-Workshop of Martha Jiménez in Carmen Square. They consist of three sessions with two hours of duration and each session includes a theoretic section (30 min) and other for practice (90 min). The workshop of plastic arts will get on to three graphic techniques (one during every session): collage, still life painting and drawing, while the pottery one will be about modeling earthen jars and sculpting a mural in relief.

In addition to the three sessions of workshop, the service includes accommodation at a standard particular house in Camagüey city and three excursions with an historic-cultural approach:
