Paris College of Art (PCA) is a premier art and design school firmly rooted in the rich artistic landscape of the French capital. For over 30 years it has provided both visiting and degree-seeking students the opportunity to explore and participate in the unrivaled Parisian art scene while developing their portfolio under the guidance of respected industry professionals and academics. With courses taught in English by a world-class faculty of artists, designers, and industry professionals, PCA serves a truly international student body, with members representing over 50 nationalities.
Since becoming a fully independent degree-granting institution in 2010, Paris College of Art has moved into a newly refurbished historic building in the culturally rich 10th Arrondissement. This vibrant neighborhood is full of art studios, textile stores, creative agencies, and myriad cafes and restaurants. Students are encouraged to take advantage of such urban vitality and to use the city as an extended classroom. In addition, PCA’s close connections within the local art and fashion scenes allow students unparalleled opportunities for hands-on engagement with fashion shows and gallery events throughout Paris.
