It was defiantly worthwhile because of how much I gained from studying there in such a short time period.

For four weeks, you will live in Venice and experience art, culture and filmmaking through the 57th Biennale. The Venice Biennale is one of the oldest and most significant art biennales in the world. Started at the end of the 19th century, it is the premier showcase for modern and contemporary art. The primary focus of the program will be to utilize this mammoth exhibition as a laboratory for experimental learning. In addition, the program will be supplemented by a series of four walking tours of Venice that will provide students with a background of Venetian history and culture from the renaissance to the present-day. Tours will focus on the Ghetto, the architectural history and significance of Venice, and the art of the renaissance through visits to museums, Scuola Grande, Accademia, local churches and cathedrals. Additional visits to specific museums for both contemporary and renaissance collections will be organized and students will also take day trips to the neighboring islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello as well to the neighboring cities of Padua and Trieste. An optional overnight trip to Florence may be offered as well.
