Is there a maximum number of students?
Yes, we will be accepting only 15 students. This is in order to make sure that each one gets individual support and feedback. This is what differentiates the school from other tutorials which can be watched by an infinite number of enrolled users.
What is the difference between the online school and the Athens school?
The theoretical content of the course is consistent between online and physical.
The online school runs across a month on Saturdays. During the online class the exercises taught are focused on individual activities in situ.
The Athens school runs across a week for five consequent days. The classes are taught in the morning. The exercises taught include individual and group activities indoors and outdoors. Cultural group visits in relevant sites around Athens are also included.
At the end of the course the participants present an overview of their work to the class and to external critics. In the Athens School this takes the form of an exhibition.
Are the learnings different between the online and the Athens school? Can I do both?
The content of the course is similar with the theoritical part being exactly the same, however the learning outcomes are different due to the different engagement, exercises and interactions that the online versus the physical experience allows. The site visits offered are a bonus in the Athens school.
If you are able, you are very welcome to join both courses.
Is the summer school taking place in Athens?
Yes, if the circumstances of the current pandemic allow. Please visit our website regularly or subscribe to our newsletter to receive information for the summer school in due time.
Can I change my location for each one of the tutorials?
Yes you can. You can do the first tutorial in your house, the second on a bench in a public space and the other two on a beach(!) , as long as you have good internet connection. It all depends on the spaces you are allowed to access depending on your county’s restrictions. By no means do we suggest that you trespass those restrictions as they are imposed due to serious health concerns.
The course is specifically designed so that you stay creative within the diversity of locations allowed.
Other online classes are free, why are you charging a fee?
This course is a school. You will be taught in real time and you will be allocated a personal tutor that will offer support and individual feedback on your work. This is not a recorded skills tutorial, it is a class run by professionals who dedicate their time and skills on your learning.
Do I have to participate in every tutorial?
No you do not have to do all tutorials, although it is recommended. You can choose your participation dates as in each date we will be offering lectures and will be learning particular skills. However, we do recommend to participate in as many dates as possible. This is because we believe that you do need time and dedication to complete and present an individual project.
I am still going to school/ I am younger than 18, can I participate in the course?
Yes you can but you would need to provide a signed form of consent from your parent/ guardian and get them to know about any related-to-the-course-outdoor activities you are planning to do.
