Underground Rome – May 14-May 28

In the eternal city of Rome, ancient Roman ruins sit side-by-side medieval structures, Renaissance palaces, Baroque churches, and modern street art. This two-week program will explore the most hidden layer of the city: the underground. Participants become spelunkers, traveling deep below the modern city to explore some of its oldest and most hidden parts, including the Crypta Balbi, the stadium of Domitian, the catacombs, St. Peter’s tomb, and the church of San Clemente.

Art History in Southern France – June 1-June 14

Draw, paint and photograph on location as you explore the art history of southern France. We will study the Roman ruins of Provence, and its Romanesque and Gothic architecture. The program includes a visit to Arles, where Van Gogh’s “Yellow House” once stood, and Saint-Rémy de Provence, where he painted Starry Night. Other excursions include the Palais des Papes, Aix-en-Provence, Nîmes and Les Baux de Provence.
