Art & Art History in Copenhagen

May 13 – June 15, 2024 (five weeks)
Explore and make art for five weeks in Copenhagen, Denmark this summer! Study Art History and an Introduction to Painting in the beautiful city of Copenhagen. Each course will offer a general education requirement (FSHT or FSVP). Syllabi, projects, and study tours for the two courses will be integrated so that you identify the connections between the history of art and the creation of it. Students will take advantage of museums, galleries, and the architecture of the city to explore these two topics. Study trips to exciting locations in and around the city of Copenhagen are planned. Join us in spending five weeks exploring all that this exciting and beautiful capital city has to offer.
