Intermediate students have the opportunity to take part in workshops locally and abroad.

The Fine Arts Studio travels biannually to Europe where students participate in sketchbook workshops, a mixed media workshop with Rose Shakinovsky and Claire Gavronsky (Rosenclaire) or visit the Venice Biennale and other contemporary art exhibitions.

Florence Sketchbook

Artists, for centuries, have gone to Florence to study from its Art, architecture, and cultural artefacts. This short course is designed to introduce students to the fundamental principles and elements of drawing through a series of structured exercises; each lesson, technically and thematically, contributing to a build-up of fundamental skills.

Students will begin to locate themselves within the rich history of Art and ideas, which continues to resonate in the museums and churches of Florence, drawing directly from paintings and sculptures as a way of paying homage to a social, cultural, and art-historical lineage.

There will be site-visits to: the churches of San Lorenzo, Santa Croce, San Miniato, San Marco, Palazzo Pitti Accademia, Bargello, Uffizi, Boboli Gardens and a day Trip to Siena.
