One evening while listening to the Gewandhaus Orchestra online, I realized that we could help make your days a little brighter by presenting art discussions similar to what we do on our travel journeys. And because we are all sequestered, many musicians and teachers are now out of work due to canceled concerts and events.
So to give you something to do and to help artists during this unprecedented time, Artful Journeys has assembled some of our faculty to enliven your senses and help you through the barriers of isolation. Thanks to technology such as Zoom, we are able to bring these presentations into your home.
It's summer. Some of us are on vacation!

CONVERSATIONAL ITALIAN 4
July 14 - September 1, 2021
Vilma teaches conversational Italian, with lots of grammar, in sets of 8-week series. We have already learned enough Italian that several of the students speak very well, even if a bit slowly. Vilma, on the other hand, speaks molto veloce, and we understand most of her jokes. We are now entering the fourth series of Italian with Vilma. There are still 3 requirements to participate in these classes: 1. you are willing to converse in Italian, no matter how rudimentary; 2. you're not afraid of making mistakes; and 3. you have a sense of humor!
Trip Status: OPEN TO THOSE WITH SOME KNOWLEDGE OF ITALIAN
