Program Schedule

Students first fly to London for ten days where they visit museums and art galleries. London is one of the world's foremost financial, commercial, industrial and cultural centers. London’s cultural institutions include the British Museum, National Gallery, Tate Modern, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Among its landmarks are the remains of the city's Roman walls, Buckingham Palace, the House of Parliament, the Tower of London, Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abby.

The first ten days in London are followed by two weeks traveling in Scotland. While in Scotland students will spend time in Glasgow. As a center for the visual arts, Glasgow ranks among the world's best, enjoying a steady lineage of artists, architects and designers. It is home to the unique Burrell Collection, the Glasgow Museum and Art Gallery, and the Hunterian Museum. The group also spends four days in the Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Skye, as well as time in Edinburgh. Side trips to Stonehenge, Bath and other points of interest are offered.

The Philadelphia portion of the program takes place in the metals studio at the Tyler School of Art. Students continue to work with Professor Vickie Sedman to complete a piece inspired and designed during the initial time spent in England/Scotland.
