Sarawati: The Exploration of Art, Culture and Spirituality in Bali banner

Art and Design students headed to Bali for J-term to explore art, culture, and spirituality with Department of Art & Design Chair Jp Avila.

The study-away course takes students to villages and into workshops of traditional craftspeople where they’ll learn about the experiences and perspectives of families and communities who pass on their trades.

Activities during the two weeks include museum visits, workshops in silver jewelry making, an introduction to the textiles of Bali and a Balinese cooking class, to name a few.

Follow the students’ adventures on the class blog where they’ll post thoughts and reflections on their Balinese days.
