Founded in 1928 as the first art academy with complete academic programs in China, China Academy of Art, continues to yield outstanding achievements known both at home and abroad. CAA has experienced early hardship, undergone changes in name and location, ample maturity, and leaping expansion as a vanguard in art. With a mission to revitalize Chinese art, it is in active dialogue with the world and has great influence in the development of modern and contemporary art in China.

Today, the academy has expanded its departments and academic teams and has garnered tremendous achievements in the school’s history. The infrastructure of CAA has improved in unprecedented ways. With Nanshan Campus being finished in 2003, and Xiangshan Campus being fully functional in 2007, covering an area of 1000 hectares and total space of 300,000 square meters, the academy now has three beautiful and well equipped campuses in the cities of Hangzhou and Shanghai.

China Academy of Art has developed its unique multiple academic structure. Its fine arts major has been honoured as the key discipline of the nation, while fine arts, art of design, and art theory have been listed as three key provincial research bases of humanities. Majors such as art of design, film, architecture, television and broadcasting, architecture, drama and film, and public art are also listed as key disciplines. 

CAA now has four first standard doctoral programs—art theory, fine arts, design, and drama and film—and more than 1200 graduate students.
