ART TOUR 2019 – GOAL R 38 500
Any art student dreams is to visit places such as Moscow, Berlin, Milan, Florence and Istanbul to experience the rich cultures, architectures and artworks of these diverse and exquisite cities. As an art student at Westerford High school I have been given the opportunity to do just that.
This Art Tour is aimed to expand and enrich the learning experience, allowing students to contextualize their syllabus and ultimately giving each student a greater understanding and appreciation of art.
The Art Tour will take place next year during the June/July holidays where we will be given the opportunity to spend 2 nights in Moscow, 2 nights in St Petersburg, 3 nights in Berlin, 2 nights in Milan, 3 nights in Florence and 3 nights in Istanbul.
To take part in this tour I will have to follow the succeeding payment plan:
• Monday 23 July 2018 there will be an initial deposit of R5 000.
• Friday 26 October 2018 a payment of R15 000
• Tuesday 2 April 2019 a payment of R18 500
• And lastly, on Friday 7 June 2019, 275 Euros in cash
• This comes to a total of R38 500 which excludes visa costs and pocket money.
Honestly, the mere thought of going on this tour sends my heart racing. Art has always been a prominent part of my life and to be given the opportunity to visit works that have redefined societies is something that I can’t give up on and to actually go see them will be something I will cherish forever.
As you can see there are many obstacles I have to overcome to make this a reality.
So please donate, no matter how big or small, any contribution will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
