Italy Through Art – Summer 2020

Summer 2020: June 9 – June 25, 2020

This course studies art and art education in Italy, from ancient to modern times. It is designed for students who wish to learn about art on-site and, in return, incorporate these new learning experiences into the established curriculum. The course begins with three seminars on campus prior to leaving on a guided study tour of Italy. The course will be complemented by on-site art education while in Italy and concludes with a seminar and presentations upon returning home. No prior experience is required.
