    Every good artist first learns the rules in order to break them successfully. In this course, we will review composition, lighting, motion, and post-production techniques. Then, with creative and experimental spirit (and wild abandon!), we will take on challenging assignments to break the rules and expand the boundaries of photography as art. The course includes friendly critique of work in class, as well as hands-on practice (field work as weather permits). You'll come away with strong technical tools and a new-found appreciation for the different ways to approach the art of photography.


    All levels of photographers are welcome.


    Students can expect to:

    • become more familiar with their camera;

    • learn about exposure, composition, and post-production techniques;

    • have their technical questions answered directly;

    • participate in a friendly critique session of their work.



    Instructor: Meredith Mullins is a popular photo instructor and fine-art photography mentor, an internationally exhibited photographer and a winner of international photography competitions, including the Grand Concours Photo sur Paris, PX3 Competition, Julia Margaret Cameron Award, and Worldwide Gala Photo Awards. She is the author of the award-winning book In a Paris Moment and the Director and Co-Founder of the International Fine Art Photography Competition.

    Intrigued by the variety of modes and settings on your camera? Get away from the simple choice of shooting with an automatic mode by mastering when to use the other settings.


    This course explores in-depth the manual mode factors of ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. You'll analyze the interaction among them and learn when to apply the manual mode settings. Each class starts with an explanation of each element and continues with practical work in difficult lighting conditions. A review and suggestions of your images will follow.


    Students can expect to:

    • learn about the manual mode settings on their camera;

    • learn about ISO, shutter speeds, and how to tackle challenging light situations;

    • get hands-on experience with practical assignments;

    • participate in a friendly critique of their work.


    Course requirements


    • Suitable for beginner and intermediate photographers; advanced level also welcome.  Participants are to bring a camera that can manually set the ISO, shutter speed, and aperture.

    Ah, Sex!  The subject alternatively fascinates, repels, intrigues, frightens, stimulates, depresses – you name it! But despite the fact that sex is literally all around us, when it comes to talking seriously about their own sexuality, most people are ill at ease. Even a majority of medical and psychology professionals receive little specific training in sexuality issues and can end up handing out pat formulas or nervous reassurances to those who suffer.


    Enter the clinical sexologist.  Practitioners of this relatively new profession, who are specifically trained to treat problems relating to sex, can make a world of difference.  But HOW? you may ask!  These professionals have spent years learning about the many complex aspects of human sexuality and know how to address such matters in a safe and respectful manner.  Our instructor, about to finish a doctorate in sexology, will tell us how she got trained in this delicate subject and what it’s like to talk to people about sex for a living.



    Rachel Mark is a therapist and clinical sexologist in private practice in Paris.  She is currently completing her dissertation for her doctorate in Human Sexuality at Widener University.  Working with a wide range of relationship and sexuality-related concerns, Rachel’s passion is helping her clients understand their sexuality more deeply in order to find fulfillment in their lives both individually and with their partner.

    Just in time for that special Christmas gift, Emmanuel Frossard is opening his atelier to allow WICE members the opportunity to discover the world of perfume.


    Attendees will be given an insight into the history of Perfume in France; the originators, the renowned creators, and what makes a perfume unique.


    They will then be free to create their own perfume via a collection of 17 exceptional base fragrances with which you can play: spray some Oud together with the Rose or Iris with a touch of Wild Herbs. You can also mix them into the blending bottle to create your unique perfume, that fits your tastes, your mood, your personality.


    Attendees will create their own unique perfume and leave with a 50ml bottle which is included in the fee.


    In the 1930s, the Muse, Candora, was an opera singer and also had a workshop in Paris, where she created cosmetics and perfumes for luxury brands. One of the founders – Beatrice – used to visit this place when she was a child, fascinated by this wonderland of beauty products and magical elixirs.

    Champagne, like all wines, is an experience for all of the senses – colour, aroma, texture, flavour and in this case sound too.


    Learning to recognise and define the distinctions in Champagne – making associations, finding the right word – is what makes tasting Champagne especially fascinating.


    Our brain has to distinguish between nuances of white, yellow and pink; fruity, spicy and floral aromas; subtle, delicate and powerful aromas – all those different qualities that make Champagne wine so irresistible, up to and including its magical bubbles.


    With 1er Cru, Blanc de Blanc, Millesime, there are so many good champagnes produced by small producers and families that you don’t have to go for the “big brands”.



    Instructor:  Thierry Givone was born and raised in Burgundy, with two uncles working for a prestigious winemaker in Beaune. After graduating from the Wine and Spirit Education and the Wine University of Bordeaux, he created Wine Tasting in Paris to share his passion for wine. He is a jury member for wine competitions and provides tastings for visitors from all over the world. We are fortunate that he is opening his private tasting room especially for WICE members.

First, married to Alexandre de Beauharnais, who was beheaded during the French Revolution, the mother of two children, she survived the Terror. Then, mistress to several leading politicians, she met young Bonaparte who fell in love with her and married her. Empress of the French, she helped her ambitious husband‘s bid for power and political transformation with dedication.


    The Bonaparte’s family attitude towards Josephine, her life at Malmaison and Bois Préau, her children will all be evoked, as well as her taste for beauty and luxury.

    Alsace has always been in a bit of a contradiction.

    Its perilous location on the border of Germany and France made the area a tug-of-war for centuries. Today if you visit Alsace, you can see how the interventions of two mega empires affected the area through its architecture and the presence of both French and German languages.


    The food and the wine of Alsace is also a bit of a mix. For instance, Germanic grape varieties like Gewurztraminer and Riesling dominate the French départment, but in Alsace they are produced in a very different style.


    Our instructor, Thierry Givone, will take you on a tasting tour from Germanic to French, from sweet to dry with a selection of wines and grapes from this unique region.


    Instructor:  Thierry Givone was born and raised in Burgundy, with two uncles working for a prestigious winemaker in Beaune. After graduating from the Wine and Spirit Education and the Wine University of Bordeaux, he created Wine Tasting in Paris to share his passion for wine. He is a jury member for wine competitions and provides tastings for visitors from all over the world. We are fortunate that he is opening his private tasting room especially for WICE members.

    Come and join Jan in the beautiful historic site known as La Ruche for a Saturday full of fun and surprises. Learn the basics of printmaking through a simple and popular technique known as the 'monotype'.


    Making a monotype print involves no toxic materials or laborious technique. As its name suggests, a monotype is a one-of-a-kind print. Rather than carving or etching, a monotype is made by painting with ink on a smooth surface. Degas loved its ease and used it to create strong atmospheric light and bold textures. Contemporary artists are drawn to it for its immediacy. One can make a print in just a few minutes with almost no technical skill, and some of the monotype techniques do not require a press. One needn’t know how to draw or paint to make monotypes. Stamping, stenciling and collage can be used to create a myriad of beautiful effects. Click here to see a sampling of Jan Olsson’s student prints and to learn more about the medium.


    This class is perfect for:

    • anyone who would enjoy having a new experience in creativity;

    • working WICE members who would enjoy relaxing and creating on a Saturday;

    • artists of all kinds who want to learn and practice new techniques;

    • former students of Jan’s printmaking workshops who would like to continue;

    • those who enjoy sharing a creative learning process within a small, convivial group.


    Click here to see samples of Jan's student's work.


    Course requirements

    No skills and no previous knowledge of the medium is necessary. This workshop is open to all levels, artists and non-artists alike, and may be repeated by anyone wishing to continue exploring the process.


    Materials: All materials will be provided for this full-day course.



    Instructor: Jan Olsson has been working in her studio at La Ruche since 1990. While studying for her Master of Fine Arts degree in Drawing, Jan also studied etching, lithography and silkscreen printing, and has since taught advanced printmaking courses at college level. Shortly after she purchased and installed an etching press at La Ruche, Jan began working with monotype prints, one of her favorite mediums. You may visit her professional website for examples of her work.

    Why do they go so well together? Is cheese better with red or white wine? These questions and many more will all be answered during an evening of wine and cheese pairing.


    You will be sampling eight French cheeses from the 1200 available in France along with four white and red wines from the Bordeaux and Burgundy regions and discovering what goes best with what.



    Instructor: Hélène Goble comes from a wine-producing family in Bordeaux and organizes wine tasting events and annual wine tours of the Bordeaux area. As well as presenting wines, she will introduce you to the French “savoir-vivre.” She is a graduate of the Wine and Spirit Education Trust in London.

    Come and join Jan in the beautiful historic site known as La Ruche for a Saturday full of fun and surprises. Learn the basics of printmaking through a simple and popular technique known as the 'monotype'.


    Making a monotype print involves no toxic materials or laborious technique. As its name suggests, a monotype is a one-of-a-kind print. Rather than carving or etching, a monotype is made by painting with ink on a smooth surface. Degas loved its ease and used it to create strong atmospheric light and bold textures. Contemporary artists are drawn to it for its immediacy. One can make a print in just a few minutes with almost no technical skill, and some of the monotype techniques do not require a press. One needn’t know how to draw or paint to make monotypes. Stamping, stenciling and collage can be used to create a myriad of beautiful effects. Click here to see a sampling of Jan Olsson’s student prints and to learn more about the medium.


    This class is perfect for:

    • anyone who would enjoy having a new experience in creativity;

    • working WICE members who would enjoy relaxing and creating on a Saturday;

    • artists of all kinds who want to learn and practice new techniques;

    • former students of Jan’s printmaking workshops who would like to continue;

    • those who enjoy sharing a creative learning process within a small, convivial group.


    Click here to see samples of Jan's student's work.


    Course requirements

    No skills and no previous knowledge of the medium is necessary. This workshop is open to all levels, artists and non-artists alike, and may be repeated by anyone wishing to continue exploring the process.


    Materials: All materials will be provided for this full-day course.



    Instructor: Jan Olsson has been working in her studio at La Ruche since 1990. While studying for her Master of Fine Arts degree in Drawing, Jan also studied etching, lithography and silkscreen printing, and has since taught advanced printmaking courses at college level. Shortly after she purchased and installed an etching press at La Ruche, Jan began working with monotype prints, one of her favorite mediums. You may visit her professional website for examples of her work.

    Graves is a wine district in France's Bordeaux region, characterized by the gravel soils (graves) after which it is named. Unique among Bordeaux's sub-regions, Graves is respected as much for its red wines as for its whites.


    It is the only district producing Grand Cru wines of both colors, most notably the Premier Grand Cru chateaux Haut-Brion (dry red and dry white) and d'Yquem (sweet white).


    Join our instructor Thierry Givone  for an evening of tasting that will take you through the best the region has to offer.



    Instructor:  Thierry Givone was born and raised in Burgundy, with two uncles working for a prestigious winemaker in Beaune. After graduating from the Wine and Spirit Education and the Wine University of Bordeaux, he created Wine Tasting in Paris to share his passion for wine. He is a jury member for wine competitions and provides tastings for visitors from all over the world. We are fortunate that he is opening his private tasting room especially for WICE members.

    In the words of the instructor, Colette Juilliard,


    “With “French cinema in its European context, 1920-1950”, I’d like to introduce you to a moment in our turbulent and sometimes shameful history in the interwar years. We’ll browse through the different genres which developed within this period and see how all of them were deeply impacted by war: the French felt exhilarated after the Versailles Treaty signed in 1919, while the Germans were making violent and vengeful movies.


    Thus two aesthetics –one “noir”, one happy--ran parallel for 20 years, French cinema (and politics, mind you!) never looking over the border to realize what the neighbors were up to.


    At this time the French were discovering “la joie de vivre,” jazz, nature, and vacations. Monet, Matisse and Renoir were still painting dreamy landscapes and portraits, and French movies bathed in this utopia of peace, at all costs. Until the day when French cinema had to go underground to escape German censorship.


    All in all, the course is an invitation to cruise the French cinema from the 20’s to the 50’s, with some stops in German, British and Italian movies if time allows.

    Hope you’ll enjoy the journey!”


    Instructor: Art Historian Colette (Coco) Juilliard has a Ph.D. from the City University of New York Graduate School and an "agrégation" from the French University. The author of several books on the subject of Orientalism in French art and literature, she also taught cinema at Skidmore College in Paris.
