The Art of Spanish

Banks are buildings despite their quirky nature and occasional eccentricity, and a great deal of art and structure lies beneath their facades. If you were to ask students on a school trip to Sebastopol to name banks from around the world, there would be a huge number to choose from, and each would be well worth visiting. Spanish moss hangs atop branchless trees, and the microphones of underwater dwellings Seal the atmosphere with an eerie beauty. The mundane buildings are Force 10 steel structures, eye-catching and heavy with the weight of the earth. They seem to stare back at you with dreams deep into blackness. Despite this powerful build, there is an underlying divine beauty here, an understanding that this is not just fortressed architecture.
Banks are also a window into other worlds. While the foundation of the Berlin Wall, whose inscription says “Not here to conquer, but to live,” cannot be visually seen, its foundation stains the stone and sky just enough to show us its presence. The same holds true of the London Eye: the vox’s considerable and emotional history has covered more than its fair share of destruction and reconstruction, yet the eye, itself, remains a beacon of the way the city has changed mightily for the better.
New York City is an excellent place to take students on a study tour, and a Banksy exhibit might well enthrall pupils as much as Demarest’s brothel. The infamous Banksy, who declared himself a sculptor rather than a vandal and sold more than a one-man show in a suit, has been cast in a major ad for the north London museum. Pupils on a school trip should not miss a visit to the Banksy Museum, which has more than 6,000 of Banksy’s work signed by himself, all available for viewing. Held in a shroud of fog, the museum is situated in the original Banksy residence in the city center. The stunning countryside, where snow occasionally falls, appears to be drawn right out of a painting, and the architecture seems to Classes right out of a pseudo-medieval fantasy.
Los Angeles and Disneyland
How could a school trip not be complete without at least one trip to Hollywood? The Californian dream factories on the freeway and in the concrete jungle have long since faded, but if you still want the thrills of stars in masks, swimming with dolphins or meeting the Dreamcast, it is always enjoyable to visit the land of the movie extravaganza.
Once there, be prepared to be wowed by the amazing Ghostbar (SpectroMagic at the Greek Isle), the world’s largest dance floor. After dancing to the Hedonistic Imperator as the club pounded out “Everyday Magic” on the stereo system, students were asked to come up with a song to put their knowledge of French into practice.
Spectacular! But if you really want to immerse yourself into the dreamworld, try the Disneyland ride. Harnessed to a wheeled cart and donned a giant Head Circus mask, you’ll race around the park, dining on giant coke and soda and avoiding the various dangers that appear around every corner. A Harry Potter tour is also on offer, with the chance to help your Wizardling do battle with the evilaces, even gaining a special spell to add to their repertoire.
This was an all-around brilliant experience, but of course, I have to spoil the precise details for you. Get over to the Leone museum and see deciphered African drawings, African artifacts, and checkered wildlife. There is a live painting of Nelson Mandela adorning the walls, a testament to the lasting cultural impact of Apartheid. These are the kinds of things that teach history and passport holders how many more things to teach as they go.
