Buon Giorno! Where did I leave off? have you missed my blog posts? haha... just kidding, but here in Florence we have been so busy having fun and learning that I got swept up in the action and have missed a few days. Well I'm back. We took the students for a relaxing day at a public park that had a pool! You should have seen us Americans with bathing caps on! It was really nice to see them relax and unwind.
Fashion Design class has the pleasure of learning from local teacher Bianca. They are not only designing but also creating! Brava!
OK, Vera Wang can do it...
I can too...
Where do I start?
The Art History class taught by Jacopo, is a favorite. He is showing them fabulous churches, museums and teaching them all that he can in our short time together. He always has a captive audience!
Above, they are visiting Santa Maria Novella and were giving "smocks" to cover up, since bare shoulders are frowned upon in churches in Italy.
Jacopo makes Art History Fun :)
Of course the Art Class has no shortage of beauty to draw. The instructor Lindsay has them traveling around Florence capturing as much as they can. Sometimes even in beautiful green space.
The students had a fabulous opportunity, which will be happening again, to take a ceramics class with a local ceramics teacher. Their dishes were beautiful that they made and everyone LOVED the class.
Lastly, we are completely enjoying the food!!! Sometimes we have a catered dinner at a local restaurant and the cooks offer us something different each time. Since it's buffet, the students are always able to find something they like. This is the night I usually hear, "can we go now?" haha.. they are anxious to hit the town for a beautiful night walk around the Florence. Can't say I blame them.
Dove la toiletta? Where is the bathroom?
