Paris Studio


For more than three decades, alumni, faculty, and students have had the opportunity to work in residence at the College & Graduate School of Art’s Paris studio at the Cité Internationale des Arts. These residencies, which are a minimum of two months long, provide artists working in any medium a place to focus on the development of their work while broadening their international network and immersing themselves in French culture.

About the Cité Internationale des Arts


Since its founding in 1965, the Cité Internationale des Arts has accommodated artists from around the world to take part in its residency programs. The foundation has partnerships with 135 French and international organizations, with many artists in residence at any one time.

Residents may practice their artistic disciplines and develop their creative techniques for the duration of their stay at the Cité Internationale des Arts. The residence also houses an exhibition area where artists can display their works and an auditorium where they can perform concerts.
