Students report on day 2 of Project Week from various locations in the field, in New Hampshire, the US, and overseas.
Cultural Fusion in Southern Spain
Students have arrived safely in Southern Spain and are diving right into exploring cultural and religious collision and integration. In particular, during their stay, students will consider the Arabic influences in Southern Spain through exploration of architecture, religious centers, food and culture.
You don’t have too travel far to experience something new. Students in Maine are learning the art of Blacksmithing through Metal Works in Maine. Much will be learned in this privately taught, beginners blacksmithing course.
Project Week Dispatches; Conscious Living
What does it mean to live consciously, regularly attending to the needs of your mind, body and spirit through food, fitness and your community? Conscious Living Project Week students have begun digging into this question in the San Francisco, California area. Part of their discovery process includes karma yoga at the Marin County Food Bank.
Habitat for Humanity; Key Largo
What does it take to rebuild a community after a catastrophic event? In Key Largo, Florida, New Hampton Students are partnering with a Habitat for Humanity program and learning about service, rebuilding, construction and all of the factors involved in recovering from a natural disaster.
Ceramics; Expressive Sculpture
How do we use clay to create expressive sculptural works? A group of students is exploring this artistic medium, as well as the tools and techniques to manipulate clay. After visiting with some local practicing artists to begin their project, students are working on pieces of their own.
