Working professionals, writers, artists, gallerists, curators, college students, career-changers, designers, educators, and more. Summer Institute participants have a passion for art and the art world, giving you a chance to build connections with colleagues from around the world. With more than 25 countries represented in each cohort, summer students gain a global perspective from their classmates. In addition, many students also take our Summer Institute courses to experience Sotheby’s Institute of Art before making the longer commitment to one of our Master’s programs. Our admissions staff are always on hand to speak with students regarding their options for further study.
