Pack your bags and get ready to embark on the artistic adventure of a lifetime! We start our journey by creating our very own passports, and then off we go to Japan, Mexico, Germany, Morocco and Italy. Each day students focus on one destination and create beautiful and creative works of art specific to that location. Projects include Japanese ceramic tea cups, authentic Mexican prayer boxes, giant garden gnomes from Germany, intriguing Moroccan camels complete with leather moccasins, and detailed Italian fresco paintings. We also explore the culture, folklore and history of these destinations, and even cook some food from each of these special places.
