Thailand Summer 2023

Chess Team for Lower School Students | Preschool - Grade 5

Our Chess program, featuring new Grandmaster Mackenzie Molner, offers instructional sessions plus new 'friendly' open tournament sessions on Fridays. See the button below for full schedule & description


Data visualizations on postcards will give us a form of personal documentary; each day of our trip, from our departure through our travels in Thailand and our return home, we will collect and measure a particular type of data about our lives. By collecting the particular qualities unique to only Thai-derived experiences, such as the environment, the landscapes, meals, culture, language, music, textiles, arts and the role of art in Buddhism, we will combine artistic expression with quantifiable data. We’ll use this data to make a drawing that is translated from a personal interpretation derived from a travel sketchbook to a form of communication that is postcard-sized.

Program Themes:

  • Explore the intersections of art and mathematics within the context of Thailand through the use
    of data visualization and a travel sketchbook
  • Discover the rich performing arts, fine arts and traditional crafts that have been passed down for centuries
    and continue to evolve
  • Learn about the spirituality that is intertwined with daily life, politics and the urban and rural landscapes of
    throughout regions both countries
