During the first course the participants learnt about different forms of art expression. They visited the Cathedral and saw some Caravaggio paintings including the Beheading of St John. We also went to see some art galleries and museums. The teachers were from Finland, Czech Republic, Greece, Romania and Spain. It was a wonderful experience and we look forward to repeating it.
