Study and create art in stunning Florence, Italy at Santa Reparata International School of Art (SRISA). Generate ideas for your own creative work and scholarship by immersing yourself in the visual art and culture of Florence.

Over a semester term or four-week summer session you will use the city, once home to Donatello, Leonardo, and Michelangelo, as a source of inspiration for developing your own artistic voice and technical skills while being engaged in contemporary practice.

In addition to hands-on studio arts courses, explore lecture-based courses in art history, Italian history and Italian language. With a population of over 500,000, Florence has been a major center for the arts, literature, and scholarship since the Middle Ages and Renaissance. As a student of art, this is your opportunity to study firsthand some of the world's greatest paintings, sculptures, and architecture.
