Language Excursion: Introduction to Cape Town

Author: · November 8. 2013 · Language Excursions

Let’s introduce our students to this amazing mother city: Cape Town!

South Africa has a legacy of great art. Much of it was inspired by the fight against apartheid, and the art of today still tends to be political. For our first Language Excursion of the week, John Bauer hosted a simple art workshop aimed at people who are not artists. Which means that the accessible for people who may be scared of drawing. Using a variety of materials, the main goal of the workshop was having fun, and helping our students to see things just a little differently.

Our amazing city not only has a great art, but also beautiful music! Our students jammed the drums at Gugulethu and learned more about the history and about different sorts of drums.

Intaka Island is a 16ha wetland and bird sanctuary. It is situated in the Cape Flats, which extends from the ocean at Milnerton all the way to the ocean at Muizenberg, was once upon a time a wetlands. We went to this oasis of peace within the madness of mass consumerism. A restful ending, after a whole week of creativity and joy!
