This residence is a part of Aspen

Students in this program are members of a tightly knit arts community who live together in Stern Hall’s Burbank House. All lectures, sections, workshops, and guest talks take place in a cluster of specially-designed on-site seminar and arts practice rooms dedicated to Burbank residents, although there are also field trips. More than half of the participants are first year students; the remainder are sophomores, juniors and seniors. Class discussions often continue to the dining room and back to the dorm late at night, and they can morph into jam sessions or collaborative projects in the art studio. Both in the class and in the field, ITALIC+A students study art across disciplines with faculty from the departments of Art & Art History, Music, English, and Theater & Performance Studies.
