Much of the program will be based in a lake-house in Froskog, Sweden where students will engage with the local art community and work on indoor and outdoor art projects. Planned outdoor activities such as canoeing and hiking will inspire the students and help integrate their classroom experience with the outdoors. Short trips will be made to Stockholm and Gothenburg where students will visit museums and contemporary art galleries. The Moderna Museet in Stockholm will expose students to one of Europe's finest contemporary and modern art collections. Additionally, behind the scenes access has been arranged at the Gothenburg Museum of Natural History where students will have classroom space and access to museum specimens.
