Ceramics Study Abroad in Hungary

For the past 4 summers a study abroad trip goes to the International Ceramics Studio in Kecskemet, Hungary, where students live and work in a world renowned residency program.  The month long trip is open to all.  Even artists that do not attend the Art Institute can participate.  The month long stay includes trips to Budapest, the Herend Porcelain Factory, and a 4 day jaunt to Cesky Krumlov, a little castle town in the Czech Republic.
