Centro de Arte de São João da Madeira

The Art Center started its activity in May 1986, with the intention of creating a space that allows a privileged access to cultural initiatives at the level of the fine arts, as well as training in specific areas of art not included in academic curricula. There are courses in painting, engraving, tapestry, photography and silkscreen, among others, and activities such as exhibitions, workshops, or symposiums.
