Overview

Make your mark in the Czech Republic, a burgeoning hub of contemporary art, design, and innovation.

Perched atop one of Prague’s highest hills, in what was once a legendary seat of Czech royalty, sits one of your summer classrooms. With walls dating from the medieval days, the historical building serves as the CIEE Site and commands sweeping views of one of the world’s most exquisite cities. In the narrow, cobbled streets below are smaller sites for other coursework. In this program you’ll explore both contemporary and historical dimensions of Prague, from digital arts installations to UNESCO world heritage sites. Against an old-world backdrop you'll study both traditional and cutting-edge techniques, from wood engraving and linocut to digital production. Each week will focus on a different discipline — Multimedia, Design and Graphics — with coursework developed with the Art & Design Institute. After classes, you’ll take your learning to the streets to soak up the culture and visit a range of exhibits to inspire your work. Window shop in edgy design and fashion boutiques, and visit art museums and photography galleries. Get your fill of fruit-filled dumplings, apple strudel, and elaborate pastries in bakeries and cafes. Make a daily trip to the medieval Astronomical Clock, for an animated show on the hour. Come night time, head to your dorm or hostel to hang with newfound friends and enjoy evening meals consisting of traditional Czech fare: Beef goulash with bread dumplings, pork schnitzel with potato salad, or fried cheese with French fries. For a special treat on the weekends, go out for pancakes or crepes!
