IAU: MARCHUTZ SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS

 

Studying in Aix-en-Provence, which is located along the Mediterranean Sea, allows students to experience the culture of the south of France. The mild climate, famed cuisine and the arts give the Mediterranean region a distinct feel, unique from anywhere else in the world. While the city of Aix offers access to traditional French culture in an intimate setting, it still maintains the charm and elegance of a large metropolis. The Marchutz School of Fine Arts studio is situated on the outskirts of Aix-en-Provence along the historic Route de Cezanne. The program is open to students of all majors, skill levels, and backgrounds. It offers an immersive experience in painting, drawing, art history, and art theory, with excursions to Paris, Giverny, Venice, and the Vaucluse. Students can also study Business, Humanities, Social Sciences, and French Language at IAU College.
