    Art History Summer Programs

    Explore art as an expression of history and history through the lens of art during pre-college summer programs that take middle and high school students to world-class museums, universities and cultural hubs. Hosted by colleges and institutions such as Sotheby’s, Art History Summer Programs immerse students in many aspects of art as they study how artists and artistic movements have been shaped by historic events. The programs teach students about critical periods in art such as the antiquities, medieval, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, the Enlightenment, Impressionism and modernism. There are opportunities for travel to centers of the art world like New York City. Expert instructors guide students through coursework and field experience, supplemented by guest lecturers drawn from museums and art galleries, along with artists themselves. Students learn about art appraisal, art criticism, the business of art, art and culture, and the relationship between art and politics. Summer programs offer day and residential options.
