Santa Reparata International School of Art

About

Santa Reparata International School of Art (SRISA) is an art, liberal arts, and design school in Florence, Italy. For students looking to study abroad in Florence, SRISA provides a rewarding studio art, photography, printmaking, fashion design, liberal art, and internship program.

SRISA offers an accredited semester, summer, and year-long study abroad program. The curriculum is enhanced by field trips throughout Italy, art and culture seminars, student show and activities.

Our students become a part of a community, and are able to engage their professors in and out of the classroom. The city of Florence is our campus, and we take learning out of the classroom so that students participate in art exhibits, fashion trade fairs, museum visits, culinary tastings and more.

I spent the spring semester of my Junior year at SRISA. I studied cinema and photography at my home institution so I really enjoyed the photography class, but all the classes were interesting and the professors are even better! The school is very small so there is a chance to get to know almost everyone. Florence is an amazing city to get to live and learn in (though it got a bit colder in the winter than I expected!) Many classes brought us around the city and the school also had lots of great optional trips around Italy.
I couldn't recommend this school highly enough!

How can this program be improved?
Maybe having a few more options for classes.

It was wonderful. I was able to learn and study all while exploring he great city of Florence. The school was wonderful. The professors were amazing, knowedgable, helpful, and friendly. The housing was great. We had various apartments throughout Florence that were spacious and nice. The school was informative about safety and gave tips for exploring the city. As well as having a few optional trips planned for students to attend.

I attended SRISA for the Spring 2017 semester. It was an absolutely unforgettable experience. The classes were intriguing and the professors were even better. The SRISA facilities are extremely nice and I thoroughly enjoyed developing photos in the photography lab. The school offers a lot more other than just classes. There are excursions, speaker series, and so much more that the school offers to make sure you feel comfortable and acclimated to life in Italy. I recommend SRISA to anyone wanting to study abroad in the beautiful city of Florence.

One of my favorite experiences while abroad, and in my entire life, was my trip to Cinque Terre, specifically Monterosso. It was like walking in a dream, even to this day the whole experience feels like a dream, but it was most definitely reality. In Monterosso, we were dropped off by a ferry and went straight for the beach. The town had beautifully colored houses that were compactly arranged up the mountains of Cinque Terre. What we didn't know was how "out of this world gorgeous" it was going to be. We went in the salty Ligurian Sea, which was vast and surrounded by over grown, green mountains. The water was a perfect temperature for the warm day and once you walked a few feet in there was a deep drop off you could swim freely in. What an experience, it filled my heart with unimaginable joy.

How can this program be improved?
I would have liked there to have been more help with the visa process and also a more social experience with the local Florentine people.

The staff is extremely caring and supportive through whatever you need. The teachers expect a lot from you, challenge you, but are also understanding and caring. Preplanned field trips are well worth the money and an incredible experience. I started in the fall and loved it so much I stayed for the spring semester.
