Registration is now closed for the 2017 Classroom Abroad trip to La Napoule (shown above) in Mandelieu, France that will take place May 30 through June 7. Watch for details of our next trip in 2018 and join us as we travel to the south of France and spend a week as artists in residence at La Napoule art foundation. Our Classroom Abroad trips include one week of studio time guided by Maryanne Grebenstein during which students study calligraphy and manuscript gilding in a hands-on workshop. There is an option to spend a weekend in Paris. La Napoule is situated directly on the Mediterranean and is within an easy train ride to such magnificent places as Monaco, San Tropez, Cannes, Nice, Antibes and others. Mornings will be spent in the guided studio time with afternoons free to continue to work independently or travel around to other nearby sights.

In addition to the Classroom Abroad trips, The Abbey Studio also offers Manuscript Study trips to various cities in Europe. If you would like to view images from previous Manuscript Trips click here. The next Manuscript Study trip will be offered in spring 2018.
