About the Program

Program Description

Designed for both art and non-art majors, this program challenges you to transform your Italian experience into art. Choose from printmaking, fashion design, painting, drawing, and more; close instruction by practicing artists encourage your contemporary work in response to Florentine traditions. Italy’s history, culture, and art are typical themes of complementary elective courses. Studio art courses are taught at our partner institution, Santa Reparata International School of Art (SRISA). Students choose to attend elective courses at SRISA or at both SRISA and the CEA Florence Center. At the end of your program, you will exhibit your work at SRISA’s highly visible art gallery.  

Program Structure

In summer, all courses are taken at SRISA, our partner institution. Enroll in a 4-week session in June or July. If you choose a 1-course option, you’ll enroll in 1 SRISA studio arts course. If you choose a 2-course option, you’ll enroll in 1 SRISA studio arts course and 1 SRISA elective course. SRISA studio arts courses meet for 90 contact hours/3 credits, while SRISA elective and language courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits.
If you choose the 1-course option, you may earn up to 3 credits (up to 90 contact hours) over the summer; if you choose the 2-course option, you may earn up to 6 credits (up to 135 contact hours).  

During the summer, classes meet daily, Monday-Thursday. Studio art courses generally meet twice a day, while non-studio art courses meet once daily. Class times alternate between morning and afternoon meetings; if your class meets in the mornings on Mondays and Wednesdays, it will meet in the afternoons Tuesdays and Thursdays. This schedule allows you to take advantage of open museum and exhibit hours. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled on Fridays. 

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses and indicate your estimated Italian language level. If you selected an Italian language course, you'll take a language placement exam to determine final placement. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Italy. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines. 

Where You'll Study

Our partner university, Santa Reparata International School of Art (SRISA), is one of Florence’s leading schools in studio art and design for English-speakers. Professors of art practice in their field, and will instruct you with up-to-date methods, techniques, and ideas. Attend class at SRISA’s facilities near the historic convent of San Marco, where you’ll benefit from easy access to Florence’s main attractions and feel like part of a Florentine neighborhood.
The CEA Florence Center offers a variety of courses that allow you to explore all that Florence has to offer, with your professors as guides. Classes are small, taught in English, and take full advantage of the city just beyond our doors. Experiential learning opportunities outside the classroom are plentiful and bring lessons to life, exposing you to new perspectives and starting you on your journey toward global citizenship.
