You canˀ actually start your application now by clicking the gray “apply” button at the center below the green “UNT Faculty Led: Studio Art in Florence, Italy (ART)” banner. We can only take 18 students and the class usually fills before December, so don’t delay.

UNT has a $1500 UNT International Education Scholarship at https://international.unt.edu/content/international-education-scholarship . This is a first come first serve scholarship with a very simple application process. Apply as soon as you can to be eligible!

Here’s some basic info on the program:
One Month in Florence, Italy: May 20-June 20, 2020. Students will take two classes for a total of 6 credit hours of upper level credit:
Impressions in the City (Monotype printmaking and drawing on location in the city) 
Instructor: Andrew DeCaen.
Figure Drawing in Florence (Multi-level Figure Drawing and drawing on location in the city.)
Instructor: Christian Fagerlund.

Students live in apartments in the heart of the old city center. We spend mornings drawing in museums and on location at various sites in Florence. We spend evenings drawing from the model and making monotypes in studios at Santa Reparata International School of Art (SRISA). We take one day trip to Siena. Many students take the weekends to travel in independent groups or go on some of the SRISA-led optional weekend trips to other Italian Cities for additional costs.

It is an amazing experience! We hope you will join us.
