Founded in 1985 by Françoise and Jean-Marie Schmitt, the Institut d’Études Supérieures des Arts (IESA) is a private educational group based in Paris, France. It has been officially recognized by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication since 1998.
The programs in all three departments of our international art school combine academic knowledge with practical skills, in the form of internships and projects. Professors, curators, professionals and consultants all participate in this two-pronged pedagogical approach, designed to train students for the professional world.
The transition to working life is facilitated by the internship office and the teaching staff, who provide students with individual guidance throughout the job-finding process. In addition, each student is paired with a mentor who helps with important professional decisions.
As IESA does not have a hall of residence, students generally live in various parts of the city, in Independent Rooms or with French families or landlords or in a student residence. The school does however offer assistance by providing information and referring students to services, associations and websites.
