Art History & Art Design

In all SAA Arts programs, students can see firsthand the original artwork that defined period styles by the most famous artists in the world. Our programs are comprehensive and can be adapted to focus on either a single or multiple art periods and styles. In either case, we include the best and most reflective museums, monuments, and venues for your chosen destination.

Drawing classes are taken out of the studio and into the streets, nature, and museums to give students in-person references that inspired some of the greatest artists in history.

Art history lessons are taken out of textbooks and brought to life, and students are given the once in a lifetime chance to experience the most famous artworks of all time in person.
