France: Marchutz School of Fine Arts, Aix-en-Provence


IAU College offers a studio art program for students of all majors and levels of experience. Founded in 1971 by the German artist Le´o Marchutz, the Marchutz School of Fine Arts takes an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to the arts by combining readings in literature and philosophy with studio art training, thereby providing students with a coherent theoretical and practical approach to the creative process. All students interested in art from any perspective—and regardless of their skill level—should consider Marchutz School of Fine Arts. The Marchutz School of Fine Arts is located in the beautiful Provence region of France near Cha^teau Noir, where Cezanne lived and worked. The general purpose of the curriculum is threefold: to enhance awareness of the relationship between perception and imagination, to foster historical and critical perspective, and, above all, to develop students' capacity to create.


Situated on the renowned Route de Ce´zanne, the school's location in Aix-en-Provence has many advantages, among them are its light-filled space, the studios, and most importantly its calm and contemplative atmosphere conducive to sustained, artistic concentration.


The College Consortium for International Studies (CCIS), a partnership of colleges and universities—two and four year, large and small, public and private, domestic and foreign—encompasses the broad spectrum of international higher education. CCIS members sponsor a variety of programs, notably study abroad programs and professional development seminars for faculty and administrators, which are designed to enhance international/intercultural perspectives within the academic community.
