Venice - Student Workshops
departuresVenn2.jpg
Departures’ Student Workshops are broken down into double-period or 100 minute workshops that meet once a week. Once students are in the production phase, the workshops move outside the classroom and into the field for information gathering/recording. The Departures Production Team will begin production in the middle of this schedule. Dedicated students are welcome to participate in production after-school. There will be at least one day where the entire class will participate for an entire day.
