Fine art in paris
Study at an academy of fine arts in Paris, and inherit the city’s rich creative culture
Paris American Academy does not have the exceedingly difficulty admissions requirements that other academies of fine arts in Paris do. The École des Beaux-Arts, for example, only admits students after they complete two years of specific preparatory classes, and a national ranking in competitive oral and written exams is required before one can take their art courses in Paris. In contrast, Paris American Academy recognizes qualifications from around the world and prides itself on its cosmopolitan student and staff body instead of restricting admissions almost exclusively to French students as other schools do. As such it redefines the notion of an academy of fine arts in Paris.
But the Academy’s admissions requirements being open to the world does not entail any lowering of standards. In keeping with its history as a fine art school in Paris, in every respect Paris American Academy excels. As part of a network of colleges around the world it awards visiting professorships and offers customized courses. It maintains an outstanding student-to-teacher ratio of five to one. And to maintain its ambition to be the best design university in Europe, the teaching has a strongly vocational approach. So if you dream of attending a fine art school in Paris, Paris American Academy is an ideal choice.
