"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."
Professor John Onians
The School of World Art Studies, University of East Anglia
AHA's Whistlestop trips mean that you can learn about the most exciting cities of Europe at a price which suits the student budget. Whether you dream of piecing together the fascinating history of Berlin, sipping Bellinis on the Grand Canal during the Venice Biennale, or whipping around a London Gallery on a Saturday morning, there is something for all tastes and interests on our schedule of upcoming events and trips.
With AHA you will have a tutor who will make the best use of your time and save you money. Expense on such travel is wholly justified and may well attract the interest of funding bodies at your University, which in turn will embellish your CV.
Friday 8 - Sunday 10 February 2013
Berlin is a place of extremes; you only have to think of Bismark, ‘Caberet' or the cold war. Now, it is the most interesting city in Europe, with a great vibe and inspiring culture. Even Mark Twain in 1892 thought ‘Chicago would appear old and grey in comparison.' See the thumbnail itinerary below to get an idea of the range of things you will see and how much AHA can offer. We know what to study, where to eat and how to make three days feel like a month.
The Venice Biennale
Spring/Summer 2013, dates TBC
The Biennale is THE contemporary art show, held on a biannual basis held in Venice. Started in 1895 each nation enters work by a handful of artists. There are large spaces for installations and huge ideas. This makes it one of the most exciting exhibitions in the world.
