Art Studio in Paris and the French Riviera
June 28-July 25, 2015
Students will explore Paris and 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, Nice 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, the Musée Picasso 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 with drawing materials and acrylic paints.
