The marble column and clear proportions have been paramount in the cultures of Greece and Italy. Artists and art historians so often yoke together Italy and Greece, that it is surprising no educational program has done so. We at the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts are proud to offer, for the 27th year, a program specifically designed to expose artists and students of the arts to both the contemporary life and the history of these centers of civilization. Students develop their painting, drawing, photographic, and writing skills while simultaneously experiencing Ancient Greece, the Italian Renaissance and contemporary Mediterranean life and light.
The Fall Session begins in the Tuscan city of Pistoia, Italy, 30 km west of Florence and concludes at our permanent facility on the Greek island of Paros. During our days in Pistoia we make many excursions to museums, sites and other important cities and towns including Venice, Pisa, Florence, Siena and Rome.
