Abstract

By examining the intersections of the critical and pedagogical theories of experiential learning, situated cognition and learning, communities of practice, and culture learning, this chapter examines how a short-term university sponsored summer study abroad art program in Italy addressed concerns for global citizenship and transformation, while implementing on-site courses in art history and painting. Students from a university art college traveled to Italy, studied within a community of learners, and practiced and applied their knowledge, techniques and skill to studio practices. Learning in situ, students constructed meaning from transformative encounters in this summer study abroad program in Italy.
