About Program

Sharpen your pencils for an artist's dream trip to Europe!

From Prague's architectural gems to Florence’s world-famous museums, find inspiration on a 6-week artistic adventure!

Start in the Czech Republic with a 3-week Art-Making in Prague's Creative Studios program, designed in partnership with the world-renowned Art & Design Institute. Draw inspiration from medieval streets and colorful art galleries. Try your hand at a broad range of visual art techniques–from painting and drawing to photography.

Continue to Florence, Italy on our 3-week Drawing in the Capital of Arts program. Immerse yourself in the world of artists who sparked the Italian Renaissance, like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, and develop your own skills as you sketch in iconic sites like Palazzo Vecchio or the Duomo di Firenze. On excursions, see more of the stunning Tuscany region, with its rolling hills and villas.

Yes, I recommend this program

One of the best semesters you'll have in college

You will never have an opportunity like this in America. Traveling to other countries with different cultures, history, food, and experiences is something you'll never forget. You'll see fairytale-like places and eat food that you just can't get in the States. I went to Italy, Malta, France, Germany, Czechia, Hungary, and Austria. I didn't regret a single trip I went on, but at the end of the semester, you'll be out of money. It goes by very fast so try to do as much as possible while balancing school and travel. Lots of fun and have made memories that I will always remember.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Create an early travel plan with friends from back home, but leave the last two months open. You'll make lots of friends abroad and will want to plan trips with them, so wait to fill your entire schedule with trips. Also, create a budget and try to stick to it as much as possible because you will go through money a lot quicker than you anticipate.
