The Venice Summer Program in Printmaking holistically integrates the study of printmaking and the artist book in a unique environment—not only because it is in Venice, but because it is held at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica, a renowned Italian institution. Venice is one of the most striking cities in the world both visually and culturally. It was one of the great early centers of printing in Europe, and therefore has a rich depository of books in libraries and museums.
Venice Summer Program in Printmaking
Learn at the Scuola
Students work in a true workshop atmosphere where they learn from each other and by example from resident professionals in the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica. The Scuola’s professional gallery enables students to see exhibitions of contemporary prints and artist books.
Side trips to the Scrovegni Chapel in Padova, to Verona, the Tipoteca Italiana in Cornuda, and the island of S. Lazzaro degli Armeni outside Venice, not to mention the varied museums and churches within the city, offer a rich diet in international art.
Offering exposure to different ideas, cultures, and customs, the program expands students’ perspectives about their lives and their art’s place in the world.
