Every summer we offer a study abroad program and an extraordinary opportunity for students and artists alike. We immerse twelve students into a culture that has held great influence throughout the history of art. Our summer study abroad programs are based on a first-come, first-serve basis so be sure to keep an eye out for more details and registration information.

Tenuta Di Spannocchia, Tuscany, Italy

Tenuta Di Spannocchi is a picturesque artist's oasis surrounded by the rolling hills of Tuscany. Students become submerged in the well-preserved traditional culture of Italy offered here at Spannocchia. A short distance from Florence, Siena, this 1,100-acre nature reserve lies in a perfect location for drawing inspiration from the surrounding environments.  

 

Join us for classes, lectures and exclusive education in fine arts while also enjoying the fruitfulness of the organic farm, it's wine production and it's olive oil production. Observe and study history from the centuries-old architecture, dramatic landscapes, and local communities. Recognize first hand, the vitality present within Italy's remarkable relationship with art.

 

Students will want to continue coming here time and again. This is an educational opportunity in the arts insurmountable to common schooling.

Second Home, Barranco, Lima, Peru

Second Home Peru is a beautiful expanse of land once home to Victor Delfin, one of the most prominent artists in South America. A renowned painter and sculptor, he is best known for his work, El Beso (The Kiss). Second Home Peru is a retreat comprised of Tudor-style architecture resting on the crest of the pacific cliffs of Barranco, Lima's art district. Here, students will be accommodated and able to participate in studio classes, lectures and cultural tours of Peruvian art. 


Students will also embark from Cusco to Aguas Calientes, known as Machu Picchu Pueblo. From there, we will tour Machu Picchu, discussing the line, couture, perspective, composition, technique, narrative, and emotion that is naturally abundant within the Machu Picchu landscapes.

 

This experience will be of great value and significance for any student looking to enhance their education.
