See Great Art Around the World

European Art Tour

The European Art Tour is an annual two-week trip to one or more European destinations for the purpose of seeing great art. We take a maximum of 12 students and two faculty and we visit major art galleries, museums, and architectural sites as well as iconic local sites and fun local color. We stay in hotels, eat in restaurants, and have a great time. The cost of this trip is greatly subsidized so it is a real bargain. Typical locations include Paris, Amsterdam, London, Rome, Venice, Florence, Madrid, and Barcelona, but every year is different. Learn more about the European Art Tour.

Summer Studies Trips

The Visual Art Department frequently offers one or two summer studies trips. These are typically 4-5 week trips involving 6-9 hours of art credit. We often tie our trips in with a missions opportunity so our students are not only seeing the world and getting credit they are also providing a valuable service for the kingdom of God. We often get involved in graphic design, photography and video projects for various ministries. We also frequently offer summer studies trips that are organized around painting and drawing classes. Recent trips have been to England, Germany, Spain, New Zealand, Bali, and Guatemala.
