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.
Come on the summer 2016 trip to Paris!
In June 2016 the European Art tour will feature a two week trip to Paris and surrounding areas with the Andrus's, Peers, and Abbotts. We will focus on the major great museums and churches: Louvre, Orsay, l’Orangerie, Notre Dame, Sainte Chapelle, Sacre Couer, Montmarte area, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and Rodin Museum. We will take day trips to Chartres and Giverny, the home of Monet’s Waterlilies (which you will view at l’Orangerie). And then 2-3 days in eastern France region of Colmar and possibly a day into Switzerland! The dates will be June 1-13 (with a day or two variable). The $2100 fee includes EVERYTHING except for souvenirs. It is the trip of a lifetime!

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.
In the summer of 2015, students studied in Berlin and Saxony. Learn more.
