Welcome to The Arts Society Costa del Sol

The Arts Society Costa del Sol – formerly Costa del Sol Decorative and Fine Arts Society (Dfas) –  was established in 1988, the first Society of its kind in Spain. We are one of more than 385 Local Societies worldwide that are members of The Arts Society.

Our objective is to further the enjoyment, knowledge and awareness of the Arts internationally and to stimulate interest in the cultural heritage of Spain.

Our society is friendly, active and thriving with our members representing 15 nationalities and who are passionate about the Arts. Our art lectures run from October through to May and cover a wide range of artistic and cultural interests. Everyone is welcome, come and join us!
