Escuela De Arte De Algeciras
The Escuela de Arte de Algeciras is an institution dedicated to the artistic and professional development of the inhabitants of the region.
At present the school's curriculum includes the general Bachillerato de Arte course, as well as studies in Ceramics, Photography, Decoration and Graphic Design. These are intended to give students an interesting alternative in the world of work and study.
The school itself is located in one of the city's most interesting buildings, built in 1971 by the architect Fernando Garrido GutiÃ©rrez. Its spectacular use of space, with each floor constructed in spiral form, was built to artistically and practically resolve the obvious difference in height between Paseo MarÃtimo and CapitÃ¡n OntaÃ±Ã³n streets where the school is located. The distribution of interior spaces adds to this unique environment for creative activity.
