Study Abroad Opportunities for Visual Art Students
The Department of Visual Art recognizes the importance of cultural exchange as a means to broaden creative horizons throughout the lifetime of the practicing artist. With this in mind, visual art students have opportunities to study abroad in Scotland, Korea, Finland, Japan, and Europe while continuing to receive visual art instruction and university credit.
"My favorite part of this program were the artist residencies I was able to participate in, such as Awagami Paper Factory and the Mokuhanga Printmaking Artist Residency as well as the special cultural experiences such as the Kabuki Theatre performance, wonderful food, and the temples!"
