    About The Rome Art Program: The Rome Art Program takes its inspiration from the plein-air tradition that has drawn artists to the streets of Rome for centuries. The program includes an International faculty of distinguished artists, art historians, and visiting artist, a rigorous curriculum with daily drawing/painting sessions, weekly group critiques, and art history seminars on-site. The program also offers exciting field trips to Pompeii and Florence led by an art historian, with additional visits to Arezzo, Siena, and Venice.

    The Rome Art Program is incorporated as a U.S. non-profit educational organization. Please visit our website Rome Art Program for more background and first-person testimonials from our alumni.
