Art History Abroad

AHA courses are much better than A level History of Art as a preparation for university work. Exposure to real paintings, sculpture and buildings develops visual alertness. Seeing art in the cities where it was made reveals how it was shaped by its cultural context. Students from AHA have been made aware of many of the problems and excitements of academic Art History before they begin their BA.

Art History Abroad was founded in 1983, and thus we are celebrating our 30th birthday this year! Over the years we have expanded to run not only Gap Year courses, but Summer Courses, trips for families and envious parents of our students, adult tailor made tours, school visits and London walks. Our passion for Italy has spread far and wide and we now take over 300 people per year abroad. Our aim is to enlighten people to the world of art, we teach on site and open doors to many hidden treasures in Italy.
