Have you always wanted to study abroad, but couldn't find the time nor resources for it? Then I think ESS is the perfect solution! In this two week program, I learned so much about myself, life, and Praha. Due to the well-structured program and communication with the activity leaders, you will have the feeling that you are on a holiday with friends whilst also being educated in things you are actually interested in. It was especially nice that you could take some time for yourself if you feel like it, although there is the possibility to participate the everyday activities. This overall experience has gotten a special place in my heart and I surely would recommend everyone (no matter what age or background) to attend such a summer course. Embrace life, educate yourself, and have an open mind!
I really liked it. The teacher was really good at his job, he could help you no matter what you were trying to illustrate with whatever technique. For me, as someone with absolutely no art experience whatsoever, it was unclear what exactly illustration practice entailed. I had the idea beforehand that it would be more of a drawing course. Nevertheless the course was really valuable: it got me going. The most import thing I learned is probably that you shouldn’t be afraid and just do and try, it will come to you eventually. The course was really helpful. The activities were really nice.
ESS brings together people not afraid of engaging in something completely different from what they’re used to doing back home. It’s a great way to meet and interact with young people representing different cultures and as such – a definite opportunity to spend quite possibly the best couple of weeks in your life if you’re curious, enthusiastic and open to new experiences. Also, Prague is absolutely amazing!
