Study Abroad


Barcelona, Spain

May-June 2018

Six credits, Four weeks, A Lifetime of Memories

Spain has long attracted artists, scholars, and romantics. Experience the world of Gaudi, Picasso, and Dali. Explore a medieval city, an active pilgrimage site, and a gothic cathedral. This program will consist of one week in Denver, over two weeks in Barcelona, and a weekend in Madrid. Students will earn 6 hours of credit.

“Barcelona Mobile Studio” - Prof. Michael Bernhardt

Explore methods for operating as a visual artist in unfamiliar locations, making art with inexpensive and readily available materials, planning larger and more developed artworks based on research and exploration of specific sites, and responding to new art making situations rapidly and effectively. Students will collaborate on ephemeral art making interventions in public settings as well as independent work.

“Convivencia: Art and Faith in Medieval and Early Modern Spain” - Dr. Jessica Weiss

Discover the web of production and consumption that surrounds religious artworks and monuments of Spain’s pre-modern past. We will begin with the Roman pagan and early Christian roots, extend through the medieval period including the impact of the Islamic conquest and Jewish populations, and culminate in the reimagining of Christianity during the Counter-Reformation.

Site visits will include:

  • A pilgrimage to Montserrat
  • Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia
  • The Gothic Quarter
  • The Dalí Museum
  • The Prado in Madrid
  • Medieval city of Toledo
  • Many more!
