FIRST FRIDAY

The Alliance Française de Denver is a proud member of the Art District on Santa Fe and takes part in each First Friday celebration. Every two months we host a new artist in the AFD gallery wehre they exhibit their paintings, drawings or photography works. Each artist will hold a reception for their exhibit on the First Fridays while they are showing at the Alliance Française de Denver. A portion of all art sales is given back to the AFD to help support our cultural and artistic programing!

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING

Stephen G.

"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."


Stephen G.

Sue T.

“Anne is fantastic! The material is fast paced for this ‘old dog’ to learn new tricks, but we couldn’t go slower. It’s been very helpful to prepare me for my trip to France.”

Cristina G.

“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?”
