Summer Art Programs in Ireland, Italy, England, Germany, France; Intersession in NYC

Art in Ireland is a studio program based at the Burren College of Art. The college, a cutting edge facility accredited by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, offers an opportunity for focused activity that draws upon the unique landscape of the Burren. This places the students in a setting where they are simultaneously surrounded by both the vastness of the Burren and an ecology that is conducive to a huge variety of plant and animal life. This becomes the inspiration for much of the work that will be created. From drawing excursions that submerge students in this extraordinary landscape to site-specific sculptures created in the environment, the Burren will engage students in new ways of seeing and experiencing art making. Click here for more information

With an array of museums and exhibitions, Berlin is a natural choice for Graphic Design. The role of Germany as an economic leader in the EU has placed Berlin in the role of a major world capital, with an ever-growing and expanding client base for graphic desigers. As a result, the growth experienced by the city in the last twenty years provides students in the program with a unique view of the juxtaposition of classical and innovative influence. Click here for more information
