Classes may include walking tours, museums, galleries, cafés, and parks.

Language Requirement: None. All courses are taught in English. 

Accommodations: Residence hall, 2 students per room

Mandatory orientation on Saturday, April 14 in Bowling Green, KY. See Orientation for more information.

Courses

All courses are taught in English and are 3 credit hours. You may enroll in 1-2 courses.

ART 140 Drawing I: Exploring Barcelona

Prof. Kevin Gardner

Barcelona’s varied topography and urban spaces provide a wide range of interesting views for a beginning-level drawing student. While studying and using the principles of linear and atmospheric perspective, students will record their observations of this lively and visually rich city.

ART 340 Drawing III: An Artist’s Portrait of Barcelona

Prof. Kevin Gardner

Barcelona has its own unique characteristics, which will be studied through observations of both people and place in this advanced level course. Students will create an artist’s book, developed through drawings, paintings and written work to form a personal portrait of Barcelona.

ART 491 Topics: The Art Museum: Art and Nationalism in Barcelona

Dr. Eileen McKiernan-Gonzalez

This art history course uses the museums of Barcelona as our classroom and considers material culture from early human development to the present. Designed as a museum studies introduction, the class will focus on curatorial decision-making, which includes issues of exhibition design and layout, collections management, marketing, museum education and accessibility.  

All KIIS course credit is awarded by Western Kentucky University. Please speak to your home campus advisor or study abroad office for course equivalencies. Grades will be transferred to your home institution in mid-August after the completion of the program. For more information, visit Transcripts & Grades.
