Course Description

Our ‘Young Artists in Residence’ summer workshop is designed for international students from around the world of ages 15-18 years.

At ‘Young Artists in Residence’ young lovers of the Arts will literally dive into the world of Arts, whether it be painting, sculpting, collage, photography, classical or modern music, composition, filmmaking, script writing, modern and contemporary dance, acting or musical performance.

Students will have the extraordinary opportunity to work and create alongside with their peers, exceptional IB teachers and practicing artists, actors, musicians, dancers, film makers and gain a ‘real world’ hands-on experience in their personal fields of interest and take home invaluable personal and artistic enrichment, new skills and unforgettable memories.

Our small and very personal IB workshops will be guided by highly experienced and inspiring IB workshop leaders. Following the first 3 days of IB-centred workshop, students will continue their artistic journey in a 3-day ‘free style’ masterclass. The culmination of the masterclass will be a student inspired Gesamtkunstwerk , or total work of art, involving contributions from the visual arts, music, film, dance and theatre masterclasses.  

Vienna, often referred to as Europe’s cultural capital and the centre of classical music offers absolutely everything one can wish for as a young artist. Vienna is infinitely rich in art, performing art and art history, avant-garde, and was home to a majority of the world’s most renowned classical composers, painters and poets, including Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven,  Arnold Schönberg, Stefan Zweig, Franz Grillparzer, Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka.
