Old San Juan - Escuela de Artes Plasticas

Art for Everyone and Meow!

Just a little note to encourage you to visit this incredible art school. The fact that it was once an insane asylum just makes it all the more interesting!

The official description of the school informs the reader that the school was "once" and insane asylum,

"Our main campus is located in the 19th century Old Insane Asylum on the Moro Castle grounds."I wonder if there was a connection between the former and present clientele- all the cats and myself not excluded!!?  It's true that the cats around the school attend art class. Here's one who is just leaving her Basic Painting class.

This orange kitty is on a break. Painting long hours can be so tiresome!

A tour of the "Escuela de Artes Plasticas,Viejo San Juan" can be viewed here:

See you after class!


  1. How funny to turn an insane asylum into an art school! I wonder if any of the former residents stayed on. There is a fine line between crazy and creative.

  2. Could be that the previous tenant ghosts hosts both the artists and the kitties! haha
