Escape New York Next Semester: Spring 2019 SVA Destinations
It's not too early to start making your spring break plans
November 12, 2018
Even though winter is over a month away, we're already thinking ahead to springtime, because the College is offering one-of-a-kind SVA Destinations programs in March and May 2019 in Cuba, California, and France. The programs span a range of cultures and artistic disciplines, and help to stimulate imagination and creativity, expand perspectives and garner appreciation for the world we live in. Though based in an international creative hub year-round, SVA community members and New York artists and professionals can greatly benefit from new experiences like these around the country and the world.
Get away from New York for a few weeks in spring 2019 by applying online for one of the five diverse programs detailed below.
