Event Description

The University of Georgia Summer Studies Abroad Program Cortona Italy


Jewelry+Metals classes with Mary Hallam Pearse

June 05-August 05, 2013


Application Deadline: February 1, 2013


Since 1970, the University of Georgia Studies Abroad Program in Cortona, Italy has been a leader in international arts education. This Program provides a challenging opportunity for the serious art student who wishes to combine international travel with an intensive studio and classroom experience. The medieval hill town of Cortona offers a rich historical environment where students can easily integrate with the lifestyle of a typical Italian community.
With a variety of art history, studio art, and cultural classes year round, the Cortona Program continues a tradition of excellence unmatched by any other program in the nation.


The metals studio is located in an old monastery above Cortona overlooking the vast Val di Chiana. It is a creative environment in which faculty work closely with students, at all levels, from many different schools and disciplines. The rich history of metalwork in Italy is evident everywhere in the art, architecture and landscape. Students visit many major museums with extensive metals collections. Arezzo, located a few miles from Cortona, is the largest gold manufacturing center in Europe. Field trips and guest artists are an important part of the program and arranged whenever possible. Courses on all levels, beginning through graduate, are offered. Beginning students are introduced to basic fabrication including soldering, chain making, stone setting as well as lost-wax casting.  Intermediate to advanced assignments are a balance between technical proficiency and conceptual development. Graduate students are encouraged to examine and develop methods of research as they pertain to their own personal interests and investigations.


Numerous scholarship opportunities available!
