A group of 8 high school juniors from the Santa Fe, NM area spends 4 weeks in Ubud, the cultural center of Bali, where they study various local art forms with master Balinese teachers: painting, dance, gamelan,  batik and how they relate to the Balinese cultural and spiritual life.
The week – long lessons take place in the artists' home - studios, creating some of many opportunities the students have to take part in the daily life of the Balinese.
They also study language, religion, history, social etiquette, attend temple ceremonies, performances, and take day trips to other areas of the island.
The Trip
Our schedule in Bali is always governed by the many extraordinary temple ceremonies that frequently happen, none of which we want to miss. At times our teachers have to cancel classes because they have a ceremony to attend, to which we are usually invited.
