As part of its internationalization strategy, Beaux-Arts de Paris supports every year the organization of study trips for its students. The goal of a study trip is to enrich and expand the students’ artistic practice, so the trips need to be developed around a precise and clear educational project, consistent with the destination and length of the stay.
The trips are supervised by at least one professor (studio professor, theory teacher, technique instructor, drawing teacher). The professors are invited, if they wish, to apply with a joint project gathering students from several studios.
The trips contribute, when possible, to strengthen the exchanges with partner schools or other academic and cultural institutions abroad. On-site workshops or exhibitions can be planned with local artistic institutions and actors in order to share with different publics the know-how and singularity of Beaux-Arts de Paris and its students.
In 2022, 9 study trips were organized (including 4 reports from 2020 due to covid-19) and roughly 70 students traveled to Italy, Germany, Greece, Kosovo, Egypt, Togo and Brazil.
