CULTIVATE CREATIVITY AND A PROGRESSIVE APPRECIATION OF THE ARTS

WITH ONE OF the most edgy and creative cities in the world as our classroom, this journey challenges its participants to consider diverse art forms and the purpose, meaning, and stories behind each work. Via immersion in artistic environs, exposure and hands-on deep dives into different mediums, participants explore the motivations behind and impact of a myriad art forms, and gain a deeper understanding of the power of art within both mainstream and alternative culture.

“The graffiti on the street was really interesting and the best part of this course.

This experience has changed my mind that my country needs to improve more in street art and accept multiple forms of arts.”
