The success of this program is based on the fact that we work with who is here – right here – right now. Therefore, courses and instruction are continually evolving. The students and faculty are from all over the world and bring to the school the diversity of their experience. This creates an extraordinary learning environment.– Chloe Briggs, Chair of Foundation

Foundation, the first year of our four-year degree program, is built on the philosophy that there are fundamental approaches, skills and knowledge to be learned that are common to all creative disciplines. We encourage students to have a cross-disciplinary foundation attitude: to take risks, suspend disbelief and generally be open to new experiences and ways of looking at the world. At the same time major emphasis is placed on craft and skill. A primary goal of our foundation year is to give students confidence in their ability to make ideas. The studio and academic components of the program are dedicated to using Paris as an, ‘extended classroom’, drawing upon the city’s rich resources to inform and inspire student learning. Foundation is a diagnostic program; throughout the year students take part in events and workshops designed to introduce the specificities of each major offered at Paris College of Art. The mix of social and cultural contexts from which the students and faculty come creates a unique Foundation year. In this environment, students are encouraged to think seriously about what contributions an artist or designer can potentially make to the world.... [-]
