Program Description

In this program, we will travel in Spain visiting two major cities Madrid and Barcelona. Two studio courses (6 credits) will occur over the 21 days program. Two pre-travel classes in the spring will cover necessary language skills, studio course projects, provide a more detail schedule of events and cover all travel questions.
 
During this program, we will attend historic architectural sites, museums, cultural sites, visit artist studios, and attend Metáfora: Studio Arts Barcelona for a two-week Intensive studio experience. The Metáfora will offer all students their own studio spaces and instruction from regional artists. It provides total immersion in art and culture and an exhibition of works at the end of the program.
 
Visual journaling, drawing, and photograph will be mean to capture, explore, and to give voice to the experiences of the trip. Daily assignments will help to provide perspective on the cultural aspects of travel. Shared research and a reflection paper will contextualize, expand one’s knowledge, give the student with a frame of reference for determining how these traditions can be a source of inspiration or point of departure.
