The December in Paris Drawing Program is a “hands-on” opportunity for beginners, serious students and emerging professionals, available exclusively through Studio Escalier in this location.
The course will feature a structured curriculum on drawing the human figure and copying after masterpieces of sculpture and painting. (16 hrs of life drawing per week; meeting for critique once per week at the Musee du Louvre.)
The course schedule will also permit students to draw at night in the Musee du Louvre (on Wednesday and Friday nights).
Studio Escalier will assist all enrolled students to apply for a museum membership (Amis du Louvre, Carte jeunes or Carte professionel), to freely enter and draw in the Musee du Louvre daily, at no further cost. (Costs 15 – 70 euros for annual membership, depending on individual status.)
December in Paris will be team-taught by the artists Timothy Stotz and Nicole Michelle Tully.
Full-time faculty will occasionally work alongside students as fellow artists, producing both drawings and paintings.
