The Hendrix College and Accademia dell'Arte's Summer Arts Program gives you the rare opportunity to work in a community of artists with shared interests where exploring, sharing and reflecting provide the basis of personal development within a context of social engagement. By combining performing arts with liberal arts studies in a unique community, this four-week summer course offers an intense artistic experience. You will also embark on three different excursions to explore and deepen your understanding of the local history and culture. You'll be exposed to the natural wonders of Tuscany, masters of the Renaissance and centuries old culture embedded inside the medieval walls.
