Program Description  
The Webster Global Art Institute held in Vienna, Austria is a six-week long immersive experience in art production, research, art history and cultural exchange. It is meant to provide a studio art-focused and professional art practice experience that works to emulate a studio residency in a new local. Classes are based at the Webster University Vienna campus with designated art studios throughout the city. Students will be creating artwork, visiting with professional artists and learning from their new environment through museum visits and cultural exploration. There will be class critiques over artwork produced, class discussions about exhibitions, studio visits with local artists and will conclude with an exhibition of student made artwork. Studio projects will focus on drawing, printmaking, sculpture and site-specific artwork.
