Experience Paris from an artist's perspective!
April 20-27, 2012
Join us for a multi-dimensional, multi-generational week of art appreciation in Paris. We'll look, learn draw, and paint - and engage all of our senses as we immerse ourselves in the works of the Impressionists and the city that inspired them.

- Our small group of students and adults will step off the beaten path and back in time as we follow in the footsteps of Monet, Degas and Cassatt. This trip is best for students between the ages of 12 and 18 with an accompanying adult. If you are an enthusiastic yet unaccompanied adult or student, talk to us - let's see if this experience might work for you. Our explorations include Paris highlights, guided visits to museums, gardens, markets and artists' studios - as well as time on your own to reflect and create.
- You'll receive your own travel sketchbook. Our structured writing & drawing activities, as well as work with watercolors and collage, will help you record your experiences. No previous artistic experience is required.
- We'll prepare you before the trip with workshops on art history, French language, and culture; we'll help you keep the trip alive once we're home.
