My name is Luc. And this may sound unusual, but I don't remember going to an art museum until I was in my late teens, and I saw no reason to. I only really got into art through my interest in history and philosophy. And though I went on to get a degree in art history, I still felt there was something lacking in my appreciation of art. That's when I started trying to figure out how to create a different kind of experience-- one more like the kind I'd have while reading a novel and not a history book.
For the past ten years I've given tours at art museums from the Louvre to the Legion of Honor. In 2006 I started teaching art appreciation to elementary and junior high students at the VanDamme Academy. And in the summer of 2009, I decided I needed put my ideas down on paper, and one year later I finished Touching The Art.
Today, I teach literature online with Literature At Our House, I give tours all over the U.S., and I'm at work on some exciting art projects. Stay tuned!
