The Summer Program at Paris College of Art offers an exciting set of courses with a modern edge in the historically and artistically rich city of Paris. In these two-week or four-week courses, introductory through advanced level students will explore art, design, business, culture and language.

– Pre-college level: Must be at least 16 years old at the start of the program
– Undergraduate + adult level: Must be at least 19 years old at the start of the program

Two-week program: June 30–July 12 & July 15–25, 2014
Four-week program: June 30–July 25, 2014

Areas of study include Art History, Critical Studies, Communication Design, Design Management, Fashion Design, Fine Arts, Illustration, Photography, and Performance. All courses are taught in English. As all courses are taught intensively, only one class may be taken at a time. Some undergraduate and adult level courses will require independent student research and participation in group projects. These challenging assignments will allow students to gain an enhanced personal creative identity.

The professors teaching in the Summer Program come from a variety of backgrounds from across the globe and are professional artists and designers. This year PCA has also collaborated with professors from other esteemed institutions who will bring their experience and expertize to Paris, giving students the unique opportunity to study these subjects here.

Paris Setting
The faculty will guide students through the colorful streets and neighborhoods of Paris. Through field trips to museums, studios, boutiques, and design organizations, students will take advantage of the abundant resources the city has to offer; Paris will serve as both a subject matter and a source of inspiration. Studio work, lectures, and independent research projects will allow students to develop new skills, refine their understanding of art and design, and create portfolio pieces for college or graduate school admissions.
