UNFORGETTABLE, INSPIRATIONAL, INFORMATIVE

For the past 30 years EAS has been taking students of all ages from 8 to 80 to Venice, Florence and Rome to experience at first hand the splendour of Italian art and architecture. The 4 -5 day trips are uniquely designed to give participants not just an in depth appreciation of each individual masterpiece but also an understanding of its wider significance in the history of art.

Our itineraries are carefully constructed to include the most important monuments in each city whilst our exclusive contacts provide access to lesser known private collections. Crucially students are taught directly in front of the relevant works of art and architecture and are encouraged to participate in the often lively discussions that ensue.

EAS courses are open to all ages and all levels of interest and are equally suitable for families, couples and individuals. Our goal is to provide a truly memorable and authentic experience. With this in mind we often arrange accommodation and events in private houses, villas and palazzi not generally open to the public.

About Ann Buchanan

Ann Buchanan has taught Art and Art History for 35 years at every level from primary to university. She is a firm believer in the value of interactive teaching and her infectious enthusiasm and passion for Italian culture mean that EAS trips abroad are always voyages of discovery.

Practical Art Teaching

The ability to draw or paint the monuments encountered on the trip often leaves a lasting impression. Ann's husband, the water colourist Hugh Buchanan, gives masterclasses in drawing and watercolour.

  Copenhagen's  castles and collections are  full of outstanding treasures and provide the most stimulating itinerary for EAS's next tour abroad. The art galleries and collections boast a stunning range of works to satisfy all tastes:ranging from the quiet works of Hammershoi, the  Carlsberg family's classical sculpture gallery, the Neo classical sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen's collection,to avant- garde works by Matisse -'The Green Stripe' and the outstanding Pop art collection at the Lousiana Museum.

Danish Kings Freidrich II and  Christian IV built many Renaissance castles and their taste, via Queen Anne of Denmark, introduced the Renaissance to Britain.  We will travel up the north east coast to visit the castle of Kronborg which inspired Shakespeare's Elsinore  and the Louisiana Modern Art Museum.

The Royal Danish  Opera House is an iconic  modern building on the island of  Holman and tickets for Don Giovanni and dinner at the Opera House can be booked.

Accomodation

 The Hotel Kong Arthur, according to a recent Telegraph review is" hidden away in a cul-de-sac close to the lakes that curve round the western edge of the city centre. It's a quiet but convenient spot: Nansensgade, with its boho shops and cafés, is a couple of minutes away, trendy Nørrebro is just across the lake and the green spaces of Ørstedsparken and the Botanical Gardens (and the transport hub of Nørreport) are within a 10-minute walk."
