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. Next year we will be going to Ukraine and Germany.
In the summer of 2013, seven students took a trip to Berlin. Learn more.
