The Italy Photography Program will depart from Jacksonville in late May/early June, and allow students 14 days to embark on the adventure of a lifetime while engaging with historical artworks and contemporary art from all over the world and making new work of their own. We will be traveling to Venice, Milan, and Florence. While in Venice, we will see it all while spending much time at the Venice Biennale, learning about glass blowing in Murano, among many other stops. In Milan, we will see the more modern side of Italy. The Prada Foundation and the Wes Anderson Café will just be a taste of what Milan has to offer. The abundance of offerings in Florence will include venturing to the highest peak of the city to hear monks chant, visiting Boboli Gardens, seeing David, the Uffizi, climbing to the top of Duomo, and much more. The trip will be led by Instructor of Photography Mark S. Zimmerman along with a minimum of one other chaperone. The early deadline to apply is July 1. If the trip does not reach capacity by the early deadline, another deadline will be established for October 1. The deposit is $1500. All current ESJ students, rising 10th and 11th grade are invited to apply.
