Take Rome Athenaeum summer class! It is so much fun. Even if you are not really into art, you still learn a lot, and the professors make everything very interesting! This program includes every main component for a great class: great place (Italy is amazing!), great material, and two most amazing professors I have ever had teach me: Joanna Isaak and Jennifer Udell!
