Venice, Italy

The Euro might be the money you carry around, but the real currency of Venice is art, architecture, water...and magic. Students who go on our Venice Studio Arts program usually come back with a dreamy look in their eye and a rueful smile that says they have seen more beauty in a single semester than they could hope to recount.

The Venice Studio Arts Program offers coursework in graphic design or painting in a city whose museums, walkways, and canals form a truly unique classroom. Unlike other art programs in Italy, in which American students only work and study with other Americans, BU in Venice is based on interaction with the Italian community of students, teachers, and artists as well as working with Boston University professors.

The program gives art students a "first residency" in a challenging and professional environment.
