Disegno Italia June 25th-July 23rd , 2016 (Reserve these dates!)
We are very excited to announce that we have been able to REDUCE program rates and can offer Disegno Italia for $5,900.!
This is a phenomenal price and is lower than we have been able to offer for several years!
The six-credit hour program runs for four weeks in the summer.  The first two-weeks are at il Sillabo in San Giovanni Valdarno, near Florence, Italy.  While in this charming medieval town, students study Italian art history and then see and experience the art and monuments for themselves in Florence, Rome, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, Fiesole, and other Italian cities.  Students also engage in a project that synthesizes their observations and experiences across these wonderfully varied Italian cities.  In addition students learn "survival" Italian with native Italian speakers.
The second two-weeks are at NABA in Milan, one of the premier design centers in the world.  Here, students will have the opportunity to select from a wide variety of courses that span the areas of fashion, graphics, digital and media design and art history and cultural offerings.
