First Round of Sightseeing
So it turned out my roommate is doing ceramics and will not be my classmate when I’m having studio classes. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ We might have elective classes together, though!
Her name is Pan-Ni, by the way, and she looks like this:
The past two days have we spend sightseeing … What else do do in such a beautiful city? We’ve been to the Mucha museum, it was amazing though we weren’t allowed to take any photos. I think I have a favorite Czech artist now! 😀
What I didn’t know was that he was so engaged with his homeland, Moravia (which is now eastern-Czech republic, but when he was born in 1866 it was still part of the Austrian Empire) He really did his best to make the people feel proud of there slavic heritage and you could say his dream came true when Czechoslovakia became independent in 1918. He designed banknotes, post stamps and medaillons for the new country, as well as a series of 20 giant paintings known as the Slav Epic… Those weren’t part of this exhibition, but are in another museum in Prague. You bet I’m going to see those too!
Tomorrow we’ll have our first meeting at the school, I’m excited! 😀
