Paris, France

This is a 9-day trip designed to complement Otis Foundation and Art History courses with a faculty-guided tour of Paris. Students will experience European Art firsthand, exploring the world-renowned museums and historic sites of the city through on-site lectures and focused field study.

Paris is your classroom: this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the capital of European Art guided by Otis Foundation faculty. See the works from your Art History books in person in the greatest museums in the world: the Louvre, the Musee D'Orsay, the Pompidou; walk through masterpieces of European architecture; draw in your sketchbook in the beautiful gardens of Paris; eat warm French bread while you walk the streets and take in the buzz of Parisian life.
