HUNGARY CERAMICS AND ART HISTORY EXPERIENCE
Students will visit historic and beautiful places such as Budapest, Kecskemét, Szalafó in the region of Orség, River Baca, Zotter, and Austria. Immersed in these new experiences, and inspired by the art, culture, history and daily life of these places, students will be inspired to further develop their own artistic practice and studies. Workshops and classes at the (ICS) International Ceramics Studio will develop students’ technical expertise and understanding of art composition and design. The many images encountered while visiting various museums, galleries and exhibition spaces will encourage personal research and a greater understanding and appreciation of this diverse and intriguing part of Europe.
Kecskemet, Hungary and Szalafó, Hungary
