Katy as you remember from my blog “Provence” is attending the fall term at Savannah School of Design “SCAD” in Lacoste, France.
The campus of “SCAD” is charming with cobble stone walks, interesting buildings and beautiful Vistas!
Just imagine waking up each day walking to class in this charming village, looking at this vista and this sunrise! Can it get better than this?
Katy, an Architecture Major, is very interested in the texture and material used in the buildings! She’s is also interested in the patina of buildings due to age for it’s aesthetically appealing quality; for beauty sometimes comes with a little wear and tear!
During the school term SCAD takes the students on trips. One of Katy’s favorite trips was to Paris. This is a preview of some of the sites she loved. Two of her favorite places were the Arab museum and the National Library.
I love Paris in the spring time! I love Paris in the Fall! I just love Paris anytime!
Two of their weekend trips were to Chateau Lacoste,”Chateau La Coste is a classic property located in the heart of the high-altitude region of Coteaux d’Aix en Provence”. The other trip was to Nimes, “Nîmes, a city in the Occitanie region of southern France, was an important outpost of the Roman Empire. It’s known for well-preserved Roman monuments and the Pont du Gard tri-level aqueduct”.
Katy spent a day in Roussillon, “Situated in the heart of one of the biggest ochre deposits in the world, Roussillon is famous for its magnificent red cliffs and ochre quarries”.
Katy and friends spent a weekend in Barcelona and celebrated her twenty second birthday! What a trip!
Katy’s fall term ends on November 8th. It was a glorious time, lessons learned and life experienced in such wondrous ways and places! Our Katy is a special young lady and she grows in wisdom, talent, and beauty each year. We love you Katy!
