Paris College of Art

: Paris
Year established:1981
Student population: 300
Paris College of Art is a high quality international art and design school that offers a hybrid of European and American education.  With an international student community, lessons are taught in English. The College has strong ties to some of France’s most important cultural institutions and provides a dynamic forum for the exchange of ideas and cultural experiences.
Studying here is a uniquely rich experience – Paris College of Art brings together students and teachers from all over the world in a small community located in one of the world’s great art and design cities. Students develop critical awareness through hands on research and discussion, they are taught contemporary and traditional art production skills, and are helped to mature artistically and intellectually to become professional artists, designers and managers.
Unique characteristics
The primary focus of the College is Art, Design and Design & Management. Students from more than 50 countries are taught to be ethically aware and to consider the important issues facing the creative fields, such as career advancement, professional practice, censorship and intellectual property. Although classes are taught in English, French language courses are available to all students to further their professional experience. Paris College of Art has partnerships with the Centre de recherche du Château de Versailles, Les Arts Decoratifs and le Centre Pompidou/Bibliothèque Kandinsky, giving students privileged access to some of the greatest art and design facilities in the world.
Paris College of Art recently opened its new campus in the 10th arrondissement of Paris, situated on the right bank of the Seine. Paris is one of the great art cities of the world, and has been home to the likes of Renoir, Picasso, Monet, Rodin, Dalí and Van Gogh. When you’re not sampling the incredible food, historic sites and nightlife, you can lose yourself for hours in the museums of the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay or the Centre Pompidou, or in one of hundreds of smaller art exhibitions tucked away in the pretty backstreets.
