Conclusion of this summer's Brandeis-in-Siena program
Today is the final day of this summer's Brandeis-in-Siena program. It's been a great group, and we will be sad to see you all leave but hope you can come back to visit us here in Siena! We also look forward to being at Brandeis for the study-abroad fair Sept 14th! :-)
The Brandeis in Siena program combines coursework in painting and art history, and is based at the Siena Art Institute, located in the city's historic center. The Brandeis-in-Siena program is a two-course, intensive summer program combining Studio Art and Art History. The program is in its third year, and uses culturally immersive and experiential learning, with students coming into direct contact with master works of art seminal to the canon of art history and Western culture. This program focuses on art of the Renaissance in Tuscany, giving the students the life-changing experience of learning and working surrounded by the masters they are studying. Run through Brandeis University, the program is also open to students from other institutions, and this summer's participants include students from Bowdoin College and Wellesley College.
