Traç offers adults the opportunity to enjoy art in a quiet and relaxed environment, ideal for developing creativity. They encourage a first-class broad artistic education, which takes into account the person and their context. The Traç courses are designed to inspire students to think, imagine, share, communicate and enjoy the different creative possibilities of art.
Traç courses and workshops include: visual arts, painting, sculpture, engraving, and restoration. Additionally, the school organizes conferences, guided tours and other art-related activities. Traç caters to professional artists and craftsmen as well as enthusiasts. It aims to boost creativity, to nurture interaction between artists and, at the same time, to make it accessible for everyone to work and experiment with different visual arts languages. The instructors monitor the progress of the students individually and adjust the instruction to the level of experience of each person.

Mi-Mo Korean Cosmetics A recent addition to the Korean Cosmetics in Barcelona club, the relatively small Mi-Mo was started just a year ago by entrepreneur Tamara Kovkel. Despite a smaller storefront and online presence, Mi-Mo delivers a more affordable collection (sheet masks for only 1.50€) of unique Korean beauty treatments combined with one-on-one instruction about how to use Harry-Potter-potion style products, such as soothing placenta face masks, snail mucin serums, and spider web toners. A second location is coming at Calvet, 44. Most popular product: Secret Key Lemon Sparkling Peel Gel (13.60€) To Try: Gel-consistency toners that don’t require a cotton ball or swab. The folks at Mi-Mo have strong feelings about adhering to toner use, despite it being an extra step shoehorned between post-cleansing and pre-moisturizing. The delicious smelling Hyaluronic Moisture Toner from It’s Skin (16.99€) makes it easier to add it to your routine.
