BYZANTINE ARCHITECTURE

BYZANTINE ARCHITECTURE

i can’t wait to see more of this stuff in my cycladic art and culture class! i’m also pretty pumped that cameron is the teacher for it, so at least i’ll already know him. i also found out today that not many students come from other countries, so we shouldn’t expect that. from what cameron said, since there are only 8 of us our classes will really be more like mentorships with the teachers about the subjects that we’re interested in. i’m all for learning at my own pace and really getting to know the artists and instructors so i’m all for this. gahhh i can’t wait to get to paros tomorrow!!!
