On Sunday, July 16th, the students alos contributed their booth at the French Institute-Alliance Française’s Bastille Day, held yearly on the occasion of France’s National Day.


The students craft their interpretation of a "Bastille 2006" to display on FIAF's Bastille Day (July 7th). The week after, the students visited the Metropolitan Museum to view works of art that were painted or sculpted during the Revolutionary period.
