Starting college in the spring or taking a Gap Year?
Why not kick start your time doing something worthwhile with this amazing leap into European culture.
The course begins in September and travels from London to Paris to Italy over 90 days offering a unique opportunity to take up themes particularly relevant to each city. The course builds to a crescendo of knowledge and understanding of Europeand the classical tradition.
The 12 weeks comprise:
two weeks in London and the English countryside, focussing on art, power and the nature of European politics.
one week in Paris and four days in the South of France studying modernism.
two weeks of cultural immersion through Italian language learning and a home-stay in the beautiful hilltop town of Montepulciano, Tuscany. We also take this time to study other aspects of Italian culture, such as cookery, film and drawing.
The Semester Program then joins our autumn Gap Course for an in-depth exploration of Italy and European civilisation – six weeks travelling through Rome, Naples, Siena, Florence, Verona and Venice.
QUALITY OF DELIVERY IS AT THE HEART OF AHA COURSES.
Students need to be able to hear and join in discussions. Tutors need to be approachable, engaging and fun. When occasionally, because of the crowds, we gain private access to important sites, this is to improve the learning environment.
Some sessions are not about art history but are simply for fun; paper marbling in Florence, mask decorating in Venice, cooking in Siena
Italian language sessions at the beginning of the course so students can learn good manners in Italian! We do not offer Italian classes throughout because there is not enough time
informal drawing sessions and there is usually an artist amongst the tutors to help people draw more: we consider draughtsmanship as another language
individual tutorials to students to monitor their studies and to encourage them so we are sure everyone is getting the most from the course
we view the history of art to include garden history, mosaics, textiles, the decorative arts, drawings and prints aside from art, architecture and sculpture
