Armchair Journeys

Armchair Journeys

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. 

 

BASIC CONVERSATIONAL ITALIAN

Join Vilma's fifth series of basic Italian, so you can feel more comfortable speaking with your long-lost relatives from the boot or when you actually travel to Italy and want to find the nearest store that sells RGB gloves.  And of course, you'll learn all the important gastronomical vocabulary.

Classes start September 9 and continue until October 28.

 

CONVERSATIONAL ITALIAN 9

September 28 - November 16

Trip Description:

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 seventh 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

 

Sevan Melikyan, of Hudson Valley fame, will give 10 lectures which concentrate on the art of  Provence.  This series will be a sneak peek at Sevan's Provence  real trip, which will take place in November.
