About the Artist:

María Elena Kaplan is a native of Peru who paints in oils and acrylic to capture the character and color of her native land. She has lived in Colorado for the past 36 years and has always sensed that the American Southwest has a connection of light and spirit with Peru. María Elena feels she is recording part of Peru’s Andean culture in her paintings. Each time she returns to the markets of Peru she finds fewer people in their traditional dress.

She is very proud that the Peruvian spirit will live on in her artwork.

Maria Elena began her art studies at Montemar School of Design in Lima and has been an active member of the Art Students League in Denver. María Elena has shown her work in numerous galleries and public exhibitions. Her clients are located across the USA as well as in France, Peru, Chile, Guatemala, Switzerland, and Spain.

I'd like to start this off by thanking you for teaching me so much French. You were a great teacher and you helped me learn so many new things. I'd also like to apologize for missing a lot of lessons, although I'm sure that I would've rather gone to them. Again, you are the best teacher I've ever had, and it's sad to say goodbye to you.

Alliance Française de Denver created a wonderful virtual environment where I spent my Summer vacation; visiting the winemaking area of Bouzy; celebrating Bastille Day; learning how to cook with flowers; touring historic châteaux and beautiful villages; all in the safety and comfort of my home.

A real treat for any Francophone person; especially having a daily place for French chat to try out and maintain colloquial skills.

Anne is fantastic! The material is fast paced for this "old dog" to learn new tricks, but we could not go slower. It has been very helpful to prepare me for my trip to France.

A great place to learn and practice French while getting acquainted with French culture and interesting people. I definitely recommend AFD and their events. Je parle français! Et vous?
