Join Assistant Professor Carey Watters on a group study abroad tour of Italy focusing on the study of ancient and Renaissance art and architecture in Florence, Venice, Rome, and Naples. You will be required to attend a combination of museums, archeological sites, and cultural activities. The second component of the course will focus on observational/plein air drawing of the Italian landscape. The cities you will visit represent some of the finest examples of art and architecture in the world. In Florence, you will be exposed to the foundation of Renaissance art and architecture and spend one day visiting the Venice Biennale, a major international art exhibition. While in Rome, tour ancient archeological sights, museums, and churches, as well as experience life as a Roman citizen. In Naples, explore the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
