FINDING FOCUS FLORENCE: STUDENT WORK

FINDING FOCUS FLORENCE: STUDENT WORK

Florence can be an overwhelming place. It has been said that 60% of the world’s important art is located in Italy and over half of that number can be found in Florence.

We came and saw it all; from grand palazzos and cathedrals to quiet, scenic streets. Each student embraced the challenges and created memorable photography in a mind-boggling city.

To all involved, I thank you for your hard work and determination. I had a wonderful time with you in Florence and will not soon forget our time together.

FINDING FOCUS FLORENCE: SNEAK PEEK

What an incredible week we had in Florence. It started out bumpy with two students not making it to Italy to join us. We missed both of them all week but hope that we were able to make them proud with all that we accomplished. Here’s a sneak peek at what was created in the mind boggling city of Florence.

FINDING FOCUS: POETRY

FINDING FOCUS: POETRY

Some of my most frustrating high school moments were in English class.  Not all classes, just the ones involving discussions about what I hated most: poetry.  To me the poems and the discussions were pointless and so were the hours wasted on them.  Sonnets, haiku, free verse; the style didn’t matter the outcomes were always the same.

FINDING FOCUS VANCOUVER: STUDENT WORK

Every now and then something comes along that is impossible to put into words.  I feel that way about the Finding Focus workshops.  Sure they have many of the components of mentoring and of workshops but there’s a shift that happens when you have 6 individuals so committed to moving forward that they’re willing to put their butts out there every day, twice a day, for a week while they unplug their head and shoot from their heart.
