Spots open for Paris Study Trip

For the past several years, the U of L Faculty of Fine Arts has offered students a journey of enlightenment and discovery - a chance to explore the art treasures of Paris with an art historian as your tour guide.

This three-credit course is open to students from all areas of study, as well as non-students. A total of three spaces have opened up for inclusion on this wonderful excursion, giving students the opportunity to apply now to take part.

The course consists of a series of excursions, lectures and walking tours, exploring the history and art of the French capital. Masterpieces of art and architecture are examined as living artefacts, while day trips to small towns offer a chance to see the more tranquil side of the French lifestyle.

David Coman of the Faculty of Fine Arts will lead this year's trip, July 3-18. Coman studied art history at McGill University and The University of Toronto and since 1998 has taught in the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Lethbridge, Calgary campus.

His area of expertise is early 19th-century painting and graphic arts in France and Britain. Coman has led the U of L study tours to Paris from 1999 to the present.
