AUCP Art Students On Show!

Last Tuesday evening, AUCP Art students shared their talents with classmates, host families and friends.

AUCP art students showed off the drawings, sketches and paintings that they created over the course of the semester under the direction of AUCP Drawing & Painting professor Pamela Morton, sharing hors d’oeuvres in the garden. Some very musical students even serenaded guests with the Edith Piaf’s classic song: La Vie en Rose!

AUCP In-House class Art 352: Drawing and Painting cultivates the development of visual and aesthetic perception through a variety of approaches and techniques. The class consists of studio sessions combined with outdoor work, site visits, and sketchbook assignments and students work on still life techniques, portraiture and live models in a multitude of media.

All AUCP classes are taught by highly qualified and passionate local experts and tenured professors from the Aix-Marseille Université and from Sciences Po. Courses cover a wide range of subjects: French language and translation, the literature of women or of travel, contemporary issues in French society, cinema, art history, theatre, studio art, and Mediterranean area studies, and all levels ofArabic. All AUCP courses are given in French. Students rise to the challenge thanks to the integration of French-as-a-second language methodology within each professor’s subject matter expertise.
