Educational Travel, Tours, and Learning Vacations in Europe
The Aegean Center for the Fine Arts
Italy/Greece Fall Semester
The Fall Session at the Aegean Center begins in the Tuscan city of Pistoia, Italy, and concludes at our permanent facility on the Greek island of Paros. This schedule allows participants to study and base work on the two most
important inter-related Mediterranean traditions of art in a single program.
Paros, Greece Spring Semester
The Spring Session is held at our permanent facility on the Greek island of Paros. Partly because of its famous marble, Paros has been an important part of civilization since 5,000 BC. Painting, photography, vocal studies and
more are offered as part of our 12-week program.

Art History Abroad
UK-based company that organises high quality courses for students and adults who would like to know more about European art and culture. It is a company run by art historians which has grown into a curious mixture of a tutorial college and a travel company. The guiding principal is that art and architecture are most enjoyably studied when at first hand in a small group of eight or less in the company of a knowledgeable, engaging tutor. Tutors take an interdisciplinary approach to the study of art history which means we pay attention to the currents of music, history, literature and theology that flow along the broad band of culture. They specialise in Italy because there is such a wealth of significant painting, architecture and sculpture. Also, as the birthplace of the Renaissance, the home of the Roman Empire and the Catholic church, the influence of the Italian peninsular could hardly stretch further across the western world.

The International School of Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture in Umbria, Italy
The CE (Continuing Education) program is designed for adults with some background in art who want to create more time in their lives to paint and draw, or to pursue their interest to a deeper level. This program offers shorter term instructional sessions, and is appropriate for people whose involvement with art was interrupted or limited by career or family demands, but who are eager to begin to study and practice again with our outstanding faculty. CE students will explore and deepen their interest in art, working and living in the heart of Italy, surrounded by a landscape of unparalleled beauty in close proximity to great masterpieces of art and architecture. The emphasis is on work in the studio, with daily classes in drawing and painting, and weekly trips to Italy's cities of art.
