Paris Studio

Yvonne Osei, Breaking Seals #132, part of Breaking Seals; Briser La Limite, created during her 2018 residency.

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.
