The cultural treasures found throughout the 118 islands of “the floating city” of Venice comprise one of the most extraordinary concentrations of artistic wealth in the world, inspiration to numerous writers, painters, and architects. 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 will be supplemented by writing, drawing, and jewelry making sessions at chosen locations.
