London and Paris Study Abroad

Summer 1 2014

This trip offers students the opportunity to earn up to 6 hours of Art History or Art Studio credit. Scholarships are available for students with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.

Students will spend a week in London and Paris experiencing artworks in the context of 21st century European culture. We will visit major art museum collections and experience each city's culture through historic landmarks and architecture. Students will document their experiences in journals, sketchbooks and photography to be used as source material for research papers and art projects.

Courses:

ARTS 4019 Narrativity

In this course students use personal experience as source material for art making in the media of their choice. Sketchbooks, journals and photography will be used to document experiences as they travel to London and Paris for 8 days. After returning to SHSU, students will use animation, photography, drawing or painting to create art that communicates the essence of their experience. Instructor: Michael Henderson

ARTS 4019 Modern/Contemporary: Art in Paris/London

This course is designed to give students an intensive immersion into modern and contemporary art. Students will focus on two European cities: London and Paris. Each city has, at times epitomized "modern" and "contemporary" art, becoming "centers of the art world." By visiting both cities and looking closely at the artworks by many artists who were drawn to those cities (or were born there), students will also question the meaning of terms such as "modern" and "contemporary" in artistic context. Instructor: Melissa Mednicov
