From £9980
Duration 49 - 63 Days
This is a 2 month arts based gap year course in London, Venice, Florence and Rome which opens eyes, ears and minds – a life-changing and unforgettable experience!

The John Hall Venice Course is unique. Put simply, it is a nine-week introduction to some of the most thought-provoking achievements in the Western world, from the Classical Past to Today. Conducted through on-site visits and a series of lectures by a team of world-class experts chosen for their charisma and ability to communicate, the Course includes not only Art – painting, sculpture and architecture, but also music, world cinema, global issues, literature, history. It is an exciting and enriching experience for everyone. Additionally, we offer brilliant practical classes in studio life drawing and portraiture, photography, cookery and Italian language.

We have an incredible faculty and privileged private visits – it is an inspirational experience impossible to get anywhere else. It is impossible to do on the cheap. On a more practical note, our fees cover a 3-course supper every day (about 1000 euro over 6 weeks), free travel pass on Venice transport (otherwise £5.50 per water bus journey) and other expenses usually charged as extras. We are different from the conventional art tour, the heart of the experience is living as a resident in the most beautiful and historic cities in the world in the company of like-minded gap-year students from around the world.

Over the 9 weeks fantastic friendships are made. In that time you will be amazed at what you can learn.
