On this 4-week program students will enroll in a total of 6 credits of art history and/or drawing courses taught on location in Florence, the most important of Renaissance cities. Through invaluable first-hand encounters with art at historic churches, museums and galleries, Renaissance villas and palaces, students will develop a deep understanding of art’s context, materiality and cultural function, both past and present. Students will also gain a better appreciation for the historical relevance of Florence as an artistic center and the interconnectedness of Italian visual culture and daily life in the modern city of today.


Students should enroll in two courses. All courses are 3 credits and limited to undergraduates.
