Refine your skills as an artist while immersing yourself in the Italian language and culture. The Florence Summer Program offers students the opportunity to study the art, history, and literature of the Renaissance in the city where the Renaissance began. While taking drawing classes, language classes, and cultural classes on Renaissance Florence, students learn and explore for six weeks in one of the most spectacular artistic cities in the world, surrounded by medieval and Renaissance masterpieces.
Florence Summer Program
Draw on location in gardens, parks, street markets, and city squares. Florence presents both vivid contrasts and harmonious wholeness through the particular character of its buildings and piazzas.
Visit sites of great historical and artistic value, including museums and churches to study great works of art and architecture close up and in depth.
Each week students visit a different city in the Tuscan countryside, such as Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca and Pisa, or cities in nearby regions.
