European Art and Architecture Workshop

Venice: Amazing Architechure


European Art and Architecture Workshop (NFC). Situated in one of the most charming and beautiful cities in Europe, the course will combine a rigorous academic experience with that of an exciting, hands-on immersion into the rich cultural and artistic heritage of Europe with particular emphasis on Salzburg, Austria, and an enlightening sojourn into Venice, Italy. The course will focus upon the development and progression of European painting, sculpture and architecture from the late Medieval to Baroque periods. Viewed as physical manifestations of the times during which they were created, a wide diversity of art objects will be studied for the aesthetic, artistic and cultural values they represent. Relevant philosophic, religious, political and scientifc developments will be discussed as well. Lectures, discussions, demonstrations, slide presentations, assigned readings and class trips will comprise the essential course structure.
