Overseas Summer Programs

Take your art beyond borders

We hear time and time again from our students that participating in an overseas summer program shaped their art, career paths, and understanding of the world.

Immersion in a new culture allows you not only to experience firsthand the social and historical significance of art around the world, but also to find your independence as an artist and thinker. 

Choose from four overseas summer programs in Beijing, Florence, Japan, and Venice to gain new life experiences that will enrich your art and future.
