For eight weeks, I, along with many other CYA students, participated in a marble carving class in a studio in Pangrati, just around the corner from our apartments. There we spent three hours together every Tuesday evening carving, talking, and, at the end, sharing a meal and glasses of wine before heading back home. I was excited about this class the moment I heard about it — although I had never thought about sculpting, I considered it the perfect skill to develop in Greece.
[Deacon Bartholomew (Michael Mercado CYA ’10), recently visited us at CYA while in Athens doing research for his Ph.D. We wanted to re-share a wonderful piece he wrote about his experience at Mt. Athos whilst a student at CYA. Read about his interesting journey from CYA onwards in our recent blog “Crossing Paths”.]
