Creative Semester offers the unique opportunity to combine artistic practice, cultural immersion, arts-based internship, community service and optional French language learning on your gap year. Live in an 18th century chateau in the heart of Normandy and immerse yourself in French culture and artistic practice alongside professional artists. Build technique and skills, complete a portfolio, collaborate on projects and have your work showcased at our ArtsFest in the final week. You'll work with the local community to complete a service or arts activism project and choose between an arts internship, language course or extended filmmaking course. Creative Semester welcomes artists of all levels of experience and from every discipline including Theater, Film, Writing, Studio Art, Graphic Design, Photography and Music. Connect with artists from around the world, cultivate new artistic perspectives and discover where your creativity can take you on your gap year!
