Art 114 and/or Art 115: This program will give the student the opportunity to see works of art in person as we discuss them. There are many works of art that should be viewed in their original setting, such as a church or a private home, which cannot be seen in a book. This adds to the understanding of the works of art as well as the art period during which they were created. There will be pre-departure meetings.
Art 240, 241, 288: The studio portion of this study abroad program will immerse students in the rich tradition of drawing and painting first hand, with instructor demos on-site, museum visits, impromptu sketching, and plein air painting. Most sketching sessions will be held in the morning, but students are encouraged to carry a sketchbook at all times.
Students must sign up for the appropriate course(s) when summer courses become available for registration in April 2015.
