The International Summerschool of Fine Arts and Media | Venice is grounded in the tradition of Black Mountain College and Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center.

Our interdisciplinary approach welcomes students of all skill levels and backgrounds to our idyllic location in Venice, where the school was founded in 2003. The school partners with the Venice Biennale, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and Francois Pinault’s collection at the Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana.

Students enrolled in our summer art classes will find a global teaching staff, peers from more than 15 nations, and classes geared toward everyone from the complete beginner to the advanced career artist.

The courses are scheduled weekly, allowing students to immerse themselves in an interdisciplinary and creative environment. The master classes start on Monday and end on Sunday. Saturday evening is the exhibition of the work of the students curated by the teaching professors.
