Each July, Montserrat hosts a four-week residential program affording art students and enthusiasts a unique opportunity to live and study in a country famous for its rich cultural legacy. Classes are held in the Accademia di Belli Arte in Viterbo, about 90 minutes north of Rome.
Journalistic Drawing in Italy
In this course, students develop a series of images in a sketchbook journal, based directly on their experiences living and traveling in Italy. Students closely observe, document, and comment on their investigations of various aspects of Italian life and culture. On-site drawing is a major focus of the course.
