Today, due to a mixup with the bus schedules, we unfortunately could not go to the sunflower fields, Instead, we set off at the beginning of the day on a hike up to the Cappuccini monastery! There, Skye Wallin, the film teacher, took a moment to talk to the students about the important relationship between science and art, before launching a camera-drone, allowing the students to understand, experiment, and witness the potential of technology and science in the face of filmmaking (and art as a greater whole)
Today was the first day of classes! Well, almost. After the hike to the Cappuccini monastery (as well as a lunch and a hour or two of siesta), students met up with the teachers of their respective disciplines and were given the lowdown of what to expect concerning their discipline and the fun and educational times that were in store for them in the coming weeks. Check the photos below for a peek of what each discipline covered today!
Starting tomorrow, each blog post will be covering a different topic! Here is the topic schedule for the week, so you can keep updated!
