Program: Summer Intensive Course
Period: Sep. 2, 2019 - Sep. 27, 2019
Arts have always been my passion, and I am really glad that I made the move to come over and join the summer intensive course in fantastic Florence. I graduated in fashion design and worked in the fashion industry, and now it’s time for me to pursue further with my love for jewelry making.
After walking the town and settled for lunch in Pistoia, the morning market was over and the piazza were clear, managed to take lovely view of Pistoia Cathedral while walking back to the train station.
Over the weekend, have visited the Cinque Terre with local land tour, visiting the 5 lands. The view was breathtaking. Here is a picture taken from Vernazza. Along the way, have met a Spanish lady, Stephy, and we became traveling for the day.
Amazing work studio with Alessandro Dari. Seriously, I was very pressured when I first came in as this studio and museum of his artwork is mind blowing.! I am really honored to have the opportunity to learn wax casting with him.
This picture was trying to capture the moon as today is Mid-Autumn Festival in Asia, where families will, be out enjoying the moonlight, get to gather to enjoy mooncake. This is the first year I have spent in Florence, enjoying the moon with wine and meat platter. Caught up with roommate Holly and schoolmate Lucas for a chill out after class at the bar below our school.
