AR1020 Materials & Techniques
AH2013 Renaissance Art
This study trip provides students the opportunity to discover Venice, one of the most remarkable urban constructions ever built and visit the masterpieces of the “city married to the sea.” The cultural treasures found throughout the 118 islands of “the floating city” of Venice comprise one of the most extraordinary concentrations of artistic and architectural wealth in the world. Many of the works of the great Venetian masters can still be seen in situ, allowing students to understand the interconnectedness of life and art within Venetian society. Art History lectures in front of selected works and discussions about the materials and techniques used for their production are supplemented by drawing sessions at chosen locations.
