Since 1984, Venice has been chosen as the site for Pratt’s summer program in fine arts and art history because of its artistic importance, its extraordinary visual richness, its sea breezes and its serene character.
“The program’s location in Venice is key… an invaluable experience for the student of studio art or art history.” –Lea Barton, 1997
Pratt in Venice is a six-week, fully-accredited summer program that takes place in June and July. Undergraduate students may enroll for six to eight credits; graduate students may enroll for six to nine credits. Students study painting, drawing/printmaking, art history, and/or materials and techniques of Venetian art on site in Venice. The program integrates studio art with art history, and welcomes the interaction of the disciplines. Pratt collaborates with the Università Internazionale dell’Arte and Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in Venice. Group visits outside of the city, including to Padua and Bassano/Maser, are included. Students from any department at Pratt may apply; applications from non-Pratt students are also welcome.
