Join Maggie Broda, President, OCAD U Alumni Association, for an inspiring art-filled trip to Florence, Italy.

If you have a desire to do more than visit a city steeped in art, and to enjoy open-studio opportunities for self-directed drawing, painting and more, we think you will really enjoy this inspiring week. We’ll be spending seven nights in Florence in classic little hotel, painting and creating in the morning and touring with an art historian in the afternoon. We’ll enjoy delicious meals, evening talks while sipping Chianti or expresso on the Arno River, and enjoy the stunning scenery of the Tuscany region. We’ll discover all of the great works within the city that is a masterpiece itself!
