Paris Opéra Ballet: "On Pointe" Studio Drawing Class

June 28, 2012
Art Institute of Chicago
$40 studio class only; $135 package

This month, the Evening Associates, in collaboration with the Harris Theater, present an exclusive two-night member-only event celebrating the Paris Opéra Ballet’s first-ever Chicago performance.

The celebrated 400-year-old Paris Opéra Ballet is considered “one of the world’s greatest companies” (Ballet News UK) and the Art Institute’s Impressionist collection is one of the best in the world. With this event, you can experience both!

First, discover Degas and drawing!
On Thursday, be inspired as you enjoy masterpieces by Edgar Degas that capture the mystery and beauty of ballet. Then, take that inspiration into the museum studios for a drawing class. A professional museum instructor will guide participants through drawing exercises in several media, including charcoal and pastel. Everyone is welcome; prior experience with drawing (or ballet) is not necessary.

Then, witness the power of live dance!
On Friday
, explore the incredible grace and athleticism of the world's finest ballet dancers by attending the Paris Opéra Ballet’s performance of “Epic French Masterpieces” at the Harris Theater.

The Paris Opéra Ballet’s performance in Chicago is considered to be a national cultural event. Use this historic event to mingle with fellow art and ballet lovers and EA members.
