The studio arts are at the center of this three-week course centered in Athens and the surrounding Greek islands. Coursework will include lectures, fieldwork, and excursions to museums, galleries and archaeological sites and the media will range widely, including visual, text, performance, video and more. There will be a daily practice of creating art, but also engaging artists and locations that influence it. A central mission of the course will be to consider artifacts from the cultural past not only in regard to their influence but also in terms of their contemporary relevance.
Students in this program will earn 6 quarter or 4 semester credits and will be housed with other students on the program within walking distance of the location where class will be held.
