About the programme

The Fine Arts Major offers students the unique experience of discovering the world and themselves by learning to manipulate plastic media in the context of Paris, the artistic paradise that has been a magnet for artists for centuries.

Students will learn about the artistic past while discovering their own talent through a rigorously structured art studio program. They learn to solve problems in alternative ways and to develop a critical view of their own work. Creation is a discipline that can be learned only by practice. Mastery implies fluidity of expression and understanding of the world in relation to the self. Individual attention is given to each student and each is encouraged to develop their own vision. The result is  personal confidence and freedom of spirit strengthening the abilities of any student regardless of his or her eventual chosen field or profession.

Paris provides a magnificent location to study studio art and to discover your talents as you explore new techniques of expression.
