DESIGN AND THE BOOK ARTS
Explore Ireland, London, and Edinburgh as we delve into the history of the book arts. Traveling between Dublin, Edinburgh, and London you will explore art museums, breathtaking landscapes, castles and ancient monasteries. You will earn 3rd Year Writing and Art & Design History credits as you create your own masterpieces of the visual and written word in the same environment the magical Book of Kells was created!
Exploring the history of the book arts, we will visit significant famous historical sites in their development from medieval times to contemporary times. These sites were instrumental in the preservation of western knowledge and include the insular islands of Iona and Lindesfarne as well as the monastery at Glendalough. We will visit Lacock Abbey where the first book to include photographs, The Pencil of Nature, was created. It is also a place where several well-known films such as the Harry Potter series filmed scenes! You will collect digital photographs along the way and the experience will culminate in the creation of your own art object. Your personal program journal will become a work of art and keepsake of your journey.
All courses will satisfy either Belmont requirements in the Gen Ed core or the specified major. You must participate in at least one course offered in Ireland, Edinburgh, and London. You should consult individual program faculty to see how online options can fit into your study abroad program.
