For over 30 years, the School of Visual Arts has offered Arts Abroad, a selection of innovative travel and educational programs that provide professionals, teachers and students alike the opportunity to see the world, focus on their work, renew their passions—and possibly earn college credit along the way. Wherever you choose to go, whatever you choose to do, our accomplished faculty will lead you on an inspiring and rewarding adventure.
