Studying abroad helps you develop new perspectives on who you are as an artist, because in a new place you come to see your art and yourself through new eyes.  BCA offers a transformative experience for the emerging artist, stripping away the noise, clutter and distraction of everyday urban life and allowing a greater exploration of each artists own distinct artistic voice.

With a maximum college enrollment of 55 students, the intimate community of undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and visiting artists creates an exciting platform for discussion, artistic collaboration and cross
