What's the best way to study art in Paris?

Hi all,

I'd like to study art in Paris next year, around January or February 2015. What's the best way to do this? Any American college programs I could go through? (I've already graduated college). Any recommendations in general would be helpful. Thanks!

**Update to clarify my question**
I'd like to do this for a few months through a program, not to get a degree in art. Just to clarify. :)

Hi Amy,

If you speak (or understand) French, and you're interested in Art History classes, you can attend any class you want in any Parisian University for free. The best (free) classes are of course at the University Panthéon-Sorbonne-Paris 1 and at the University Sorbonne-Paris 4. Just check out there websites, look through the classes' schedules and descriptions, and be on time when the classes start. You can go in the classrooms, spend 2 hours there, listening and learning…, and no one will ask you your name. And if the professor asks you (or perhaps you might even want to talk to the professors to get more info), simply explain that you're an American student (in exchange), and you don't need credits. They'll let you attend all their classes for free :)

I studied Art History and Archaeology in Paris, and later worked as an Academic Tutor at the University of Paris I. I used to help foreign students (especially those studying Arts, Art History or Archaeology) in Paris; so recently I've posted some tips on our blog. Here are the links to both blog posts:

Let me know if you have any questions, or need more info. I'm always happy to help! :)
