  • I did the summer program 'How to use your eyes' It was an absolutely amazing and dreamlike five day workshop. The teacher (Timothy Jones) was out of this world and the beautiful landscape was like a fairy tail I came all the way from Israel and I plan on coming again. Since that course I've changed my life route and will be studying fine arts. I can't wait until I go back
  • Beautiful setting although not really open to visitors at all times we were allowed to peek in. I wish I studied there! Old castle ruins set by the mountain.
