The Studio Art Program in Aix-en-Provence in Southern France is offered at the Marchutz School of Drawing and Painting, located on the Tholonet Road, just outside Aix-en-Provence, near the Chateaunoir where Cézanne lived and worked. The Marchutz School, founded by German artist Leo Marchutz in 1971, is now under the auspices of the Institute for American Universities.
IFALPES, the Institut Français des Alpes, with two sites -- Annecy or Chambéry -- specializes in the teaching of French language courses. The student body is drawn from countries around the world, not just American students. The academic program is under the supervision of the Université Catholique de Lyon and is identical in Chambéry and Annecy.
The Institute for American Universities Centre d'Avignon is located in the center of the city. Avignon is located on the Rhône River, 50 miles from the Mediterranean.
