Each student will begin the program by arriving in Baltimore and staying in a residence hall overnight. A brief pre-program orientation will prepare students for travel abroad in this program. Students in the MICA Pre-College in Tuscany program will travel as a group to Italy from Baltimore Washington International/Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), and a program staff member will accompany them to their destination. At the end of the three-week session, a program staff member will accompany students on the return trip. It is the responsibility of the student to arrange his or her own travel to and from Baltimore. The cost of traveling to and from Baltimore is not included in the program cost.
All students will receive with their acceptance letter detailed instructions on traveling to Baltimore, ground transportation information for your arrival in Baltimore, and pick-up/departure information for the end of each session.
NOTE: Participating students are required to have a current passport for travel outside of the United States. Students who do not have a passport will not be allowed to participate in the program.
What To Bring
Some art supplies are provided, but students must bring most art making materials. A materials list will be sent, and students should wait to buy art supplies until the list arrives. Cost for students purchasing all materials on the list could total $300-$400. Although the program covers most meals, students should bring between $100 and $150 for a few lunches that are not covered. The residence, Le Puscine, provides bed linens but not towels, so students should bring several towels (Le Puscine has a laundry room for students to wash towels and clothes at no charge). Students will want to have spending money as well.
