Art Studio in Paris and the French Riviera
Summer Abroad 2015
June 28–July 25, 2015: Paris, French Riviera
In this program, led by Professors Gina Werfel and Hearne Pardee, students will explore the French countryside, architecture and art by drawing and painting on site, in museums, and from live models. We begin the program in a beautiful chateau situated on a sandy beach overlooking the Mediterranean—a landscape that inspired the Impressionists. There will be field trips to Le Cannet, Antibes and Vence—focusing on the works of Matisse, Bonnard and Picasso. We then move to Paris where we will have access to its rich store of painting, sculpture and architecture, visiting museums such as the Louvre, Centre Pompidou and Musée d’Orsay; drawing from works in the museums will be combined with work in the studio and around the city. Students will work on paper or boards with drawing materials and acrylic paints. Prerequisite: Art Studio 2 (or consent of instructor)
