UC Davis Study Abroad maintains a page of recommended programs
for students in Art Studio.
Each year, UC Davis offers four students scholarships to
attend the Royal Drawing School’s Drawing Intensive program
during the Fall Quarter. The Royal Drawing School aims
to raise the standard and profile of drawing through teaching and
practice. At its core is the belief that drawing is crucial for
all aspects of visual learning.
This opportunity is open to all UCD
seniors and recently graduated Art Studio majors.
Art students are shown at Columbia University in Paris,
where their studio classroom was located. The students
participated in the 2014 Summer Abroad program, Art
Studio in Paris and the French Riviera, taught by professors Gina
Werfel and Hearne Pardee of the Art Department.
