The Skopelos Foundation

Hello folks,

I am leaving next week for Greece. This is my third year teaching at "the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts" on the Island of Skopelos. I am looking forward to my adventure and seeing the students reactions to their experiences.

Here is a link:

Below you can read information about the class:

Gulf Coast State College  
Study Abroad Ceramics Program – May 30 –  June -18th
Athens / Skopelos /Greece

This ceramics class will focus on the rich heritage of Greece as well as the student’s travel experience. It will begin with a two-week preparation period in hand building methods at Gulf Coast State College.

After two weeks of ceramic “boot camp” students will leave Panama City FL, to work in Greece. The first stop will be Athens, where students will visit the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, and the National Archeological Museum.

The group will then travel to the island of Skopelos and continue with the hands-on part of the class. The students will draw on the rich artistic and cultural traditions of Greece, the Island of Skopelos and their experience as a traveler to create work in clay.

In order for students to get a taste of the island living, housing for students will be provided by the local residents in the area.

Instruction will be offered in the morning and afternoon with an ample mid-day break for lunch and exploration.
