In the Heart of the Renaissance

experiental learning | Italian cultural programme

You and your students in Italy

In the Heart of the Renaissance is our standard two-week art history seminar tour in Italy specially designed for high schools and colleges students... and teachers or professors. Our educational tour takes place in Rome and Tuscany (Florence and the region of Siena) and is a magical combination of discovery walks, art history lessons, museums, down time, art making (optional), and yes... shopping. Ideal for the American Charter Schools.

There is a growing need for students and teachers in smaller universities, colleges and high schools to enrich their curricula by offering out of country classes or seminars on art, architecture, art history, museums and the rich treasures of cities. Unlike the Ivy League establishments in North America, the majority of our educational institutions do not have their own European infrastructure in order to internationalize their programs. At a low cost, We provide a significant learning experience to all participants who join us in some of the world’s most magical and beautiful locations.


This program is offered to high schools, colleges and univeristies which may select two weeks (upon availability) between spring and early summer for their students’ annual cultural expedition.

“Every renaissance comes to the world with a cry,
the cry of the human spirit to be free” (A. S. Macy)

Since 1996, icscis walkthearts have been offering quality painting or art workshops and educational tours in France, Italy, Egypt, Spain, United States and Colombia. It is in Tuscany (around Montepulciano, Pienza and Cortona) that we paint in plein-air, learn and discuss, since the landscapes of the Val d'Orcia are just astounding and the quality of life, seducing.  Attended by hundreds of art lovers and artists from all around the world, mostly New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Ottawa and Australia, our painting courses and art history seminars are given to small group by professional artists and art historians. walkthearts.com also provides educational travel for high school, college and/or university students, or on a private basis.
