In addition to a program for college students, API also offers a Pre-college program meant for students ages 16-18! Keep reading to learn more about this amazing opportunity.

Art & Design Summer Programs

Parsons Paris is a world-renowned art and design school. It also boasts some of the top U.S. and international accreditations (including NASAD and Middle States). Because of this, our Art & Design Pre-College Summer Program is a perfect fit for college students studying art, fashion, photography or design. It’s also a great fit for high school students wanting to get a head start on an education and career in art & design.

API offers two summer tracks for students. Both options allow students to choose one course for 3 U.S. college credits. Course options include Fashion Design Process, Intro to Jewelry Design, Explorations in Drawing, Portfolio Preparation and more!

Explore beautiful design & architecture in Paris

Because of Paris’ unique history and architecture, students have the opportunity to see art & design in action in one of the world’s most beautiful cities! Our API Resident Directors will take students on excursions throughout the city. Tour the beautiful château de Chambord and the Chambord Forest (where Leonardo da Vinci used to wander!). Visit the world-famous Louvre and see art dating back thousands of years. See a ballet or theater performance. There are so many ways to immerse yourself in Paris’ beautiful culture!
