France: Paris


Turn Paris into your classroom for 4 weeks this summer! Surround yourself with world-class art and culture on Summer in Paris. CISabroad Summer in Paris is well-recognized for its training of art experts and professionals and managers in cultural administration. Paris has something for everyone, but especially art-lovers and budding artists! A great part of Summer in Paris is learning both in and out of the classroom. You won't just read about a painting in class, you'll go see it in person and really understand the artist's perspective. You'll also get to live in the heart of Paris in cool, furnished apartments and get to know the other CISabroad students from all over the US. And, just in case living in Paris isn't enough for the summer, we're also including 2 excursions, one to Versailles and one to Brussels!


1. Two excursions included

2. Hone your photography, painting, or drawing skills with the world's greatest masters and Paris as your inspiration

3. Most classes taught in English, with the option of a French art history course taught in French for intermediate/advanced speakers
