Art History : From Impressionism to Conceptual Art

Are you interested in Art History? Would you like to learn how to analyze artwork in a museum and speak confidently about it? If this interests you, I am offering tutoring on Modern International art, starting with Impressionism and moving through to conceptual art. Each class will cover a particular movement, I will assign the reading of interest and virtual exhibitions worth seeing.

Art History is a valuable subject as it teaches you excellent research and writing skills, how to speak confidently, and strong analyzing skills. I can give introduction courses to the subject, from how to analyze a work to how to write about art. I can give in-depth courses to university students.
I am also able to give courses in the Irish language.

Gabrielle
Develop interest and knowledge in art history
Graduated from a Bac +3 in Art History and a Bac + 3 in History, I want to share my knowledge and my enthusiasm for art history. I offer dynamic lessons adapted to each student to arouse their interest, ensure their learning and success in the subject. As with any art historian, the key is to start from images and other types of artistic productions to see all that they tell us (and all that they sometimes hide from us!)

Antoine
Private lessons in French, English, Philosophy, History of art.
Student in Master 1 History of art criticism. Very good level of English. Extensive areas of knowledge. My goal is to make the student / adult progress, to fill his / her gaps and that he / she has more confidence in his / her capacities. Mathematics help possible up to college level.

Alice
Graduate teacher for exam assistance, essay writing, general culture or guided tours
I give private lessons in art history for three years, either for students who need an accompaniment, or for the curious who want to enrich their artistic culture. My teaching adapts precisely to the needs of each student and especially to their way of assimilating information. Former student in difficulty, I developed a method that allows to analyze any type of work, from classical to contemporary, without prior knowledge. I am specialized in the methodology of dissertation / dissertation according to the rules of the French University. (Construction of the plan, development of a common thread, layout etc.) Passionate, I also like to transmit the wonderful stories of the works during introductory courses in art history, artistic culture or guided tours of the museum. My classes are also convivial moments where we can talk about our personal interests, which allows me to direct my students to exhibitions, readings or events related to their subject. My goal is obviously to make my students autonomous, so I give them all the tools they need to know how to provide excellent work without being dependent on the particular teacher at the end of the year. My last students: - Zaïd: redoubling for the second time his degree in Visual Arts at the Sorbonne because of theoretical subjects, passed his exams successfully this year. He regained confidence and taste to study. -Claire: student at Boulle school in woodcarving redoubled because of his memory. I supervised him in the writing of his new dissertation mixing literary analysis, artistic and scientific discoveries. She validated it brilliantly. -Tian: 30 years old, Chinese student, had no knowledge of the history of Western art. After one year of private lessons, she was admitted to the GRETA School of Guides Speakers. -Aude: I guide Aude and her two teenage children in the big museums to discover the little stories behind each painting. From the Palais de Tokyo to the Louvre Museum I invent for them playful ways to apprehend the works. - Jacqueline: 94, had lost her good humor and was bored. For two years now, we meet every week for a moment of sharing and exchange around artistic themes chosen especially for her. It's a joy for everyone.

Corentin
Master's student in literary studies research gives courses in French (and art history, philosophy, English)
The methodology that I use is tailor-made to the needs of the student and I am in favor of him learning by understanding rather than learning by heart without ultimately calling on his own knowledge. Also, giving students the keys to understanding while being confident about what they know is important for their development. Thus, I put myself at the height of the student's understanding. Its success will be important to me as soon as we work together. I obviously refer to the school program (readings, notions etc.) and am in favor at another time, according to the goodwill of the student, to make him discover other references to broaden his culture. I am able to give courses in French, art history, philosophy and English in fields of action such as reading and writing, writing and methodology, oral expression, information research etc.

Leçons de Langue française, de Littérature et d'Histoire littéraire
Vous êtes passionné de Littérature française, d'Histoire littéraire et d'arts ? Je vous propose d'aller, ensemble, à la découverte des grands auteurs qui ont fait le charme de notre pays. Parce que je crois en une harmonie des choses, en une corrélation des valeurs, je propose une approche pluridisciplinaire de la Littérature française. Une méthode alliant lettres modernes ( biographie des auteurs et étude de textes ; grammaire ) proprement dites à histoire et sociologie littéraires, rhétorique et philosophie, littératures étrangères, et l’art de manière générale ( théâtre, opéra, cinéma, graphie… ). À l'inspiration de la méthode socratique, la mienne est empreinte de dialogue, d'échange, d'incessants questionnements plus que de leçons magistrales. Partant des besoins de l'apprenant, dont j'apprends également, nous élaborons ensemble des domaines d'étude. Expertise : Écrivain publié et récompensé, pour ma poésie et mes nouvelles en particulier, je donne des conférences et dis des chroniques radio sur la politique et la culture. Je suis spécialisé en lettres du XIXeS, et en poésie. Parcours éducatif : Étudiant en Lettres modernes, titulaire d'un baccalauréat littéraire, ancien étudiant juriste.

Learn the history of the arts: learn and deepen
The history of the arts is my passion, my hobby and the subject of my license in Humanities, as well as my specialty at the BAC. Whether you are preparing for college or high school exams, whether you are passionate about a certain period or a certain movement, or even want to be initiated, this course is for you! In a playful form, it will be a question of learning more about the different artists and thinkers of History and especially of understanding their implication on our current world. It will be a question of putting an end to the belief that the history of the arts is reserved for the elite, because it can light up the life of each one. I can advise you on writings, films, magazines, broadcasts, series ... which make art history and art history an affordable and fundamental discipline.
