Discover art and artists from Paris to New York!
In these workshops, you will have the opportunity to discover the fascinating life and art in cafés, theaters, studios and galleries of Paris and NYC during the « années folles » by looking at the works of Man Ray, Alexander Calder, Kiki de Montparnasse, Hemingway, Josephine Baker, and Marcel Duchamp, among others. You will not only watch videos and other media in class but you will also visit galleries and other cultural centers to see these works in person.
These workshops are for you if you are curious not only about art history but also about the French way of life, and if you want to improve your communication skills outside of the typical classroom experience.
By the end of these workshops, you will be able to better understand short texts and videos, to talk about your feelings and experiences, and to produce a simple and well organized speech. You will also be able to write short articles about artworks you analyzed in class and in museums.
