English 2440/Art 2750: Poetry, Painting, and Paris
(Travel day, June 19)
Monday June 20, 2011- departing Thursday July 7, 2011
This course focuses on writing about and studying the art of Paris. Students who choose the creative writing option will be required to produce a body of poetry based on their field experiences in one of the world's great cities. We'll spend time almost every day in the museums and monuments of Paris - the d'Orsay, the Louvre, the Pompidou Center, the Picasso Museum, the Rodin Museum, and other smaller places (the museum of the Monet water lilies - to view les Nymphéas--for example), and students will write seriously about both painting and poetry. We'll read and study poems about paintings in Paris, and poems about Paris itself.
COST: $3,395.00 per person

Arrangements have been made for students to live in the dormitories of the University of Paris for American students, in the center of Paris.
