Photography students have been exploring the topics of architecture and movement, and how to capture them in images. To do this they used both their cell phones and their cameras. They spent their afternoon capturing their subjects and editing the photos with photoshop.

The Spoleto Palio:
Throughout the duration of the program students will be competing against one another in contrade (teams). Each contrada has a name and a symbol based on Siena’s infamous contrade. Last night we held our first event, a scavenger hunt around Spoleto, and Lupa won! We will continue to have events and activities, and we will update you as we do.
