Well, we’ve finally done it! We’re jumping on the bandwagon with other AAU departments like Fine Art, who has been rocking in Florence for a few summers now. In case you missed last week’s online chat, here are the “5 W’s” for PH499/699 Study Abroad, now scheduled for Florence, Italy, Summer 2016.
Who? Any AA or BFA students can take PH499, and any MA or MFA students can take PH699. You need not be a PH major, and there are no pre-requisites.
What? This is a 6-unit, studio course that follows the structure of a group directed study. You’ll propose a portfolio-related project, and you’ll work closely with classmates and your instructor to execute it. Final submissions will be realized as an exhibition in Florence!
Where? Did we mention it’s in Florence? Florence is the capital of Tuscany, a region of Italy known for its art, culture, and historical significance. Supervised tours will allow students to explore and photograph Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Cortona, Montepulciano, Fiesole, and Rome.
When? Summer 2016, June 20 – August 13 (7-1⁄2 week semester).
Why? We want to broaden your artistic education by allowing you an immersion experience. For its visual wonder and plethora of museums, restaurants, sites, and monuments, we’re sure Florence will be an unique and inspiring opportunity.
And lastly . . .
