Drawing the City is an immersive four-week studio- and research-based program for intermediate to advanced artists. Artists will explore Paris and develop both their conceptual and technical approaches to drawing through faculty-led drawing sessions from observation, held at sites all over the city, including iconic settings such as Montmartre, Ile St Louis, Luxembourg gardens and Pere Lachaise cemetery, as well as lesser-known hidden gems such as “boutique” museums and historic ateliers. Certain themes that will be explored are contemporary plein–air practices, fieldwork notebooks, collage without photography, and drawing as source material (for other drawings, paintings or sculpture).
