LISAA offers an enhanced integration programme to Chinese students
This year, LISAA is offering Chinese students who wish to pursue their studies in the fields of design a one-year introduction programme in applied arts. It is an opportunity to best prepare their integration into France before beginning their further studies.
AN INTRODUCTION TO THE APPLIED ARTS
Over the course of a year, 15 Chinese students are following a course at LISAA that teaches the foundations of design. This programme prepares the students to acquire the linguistic, methodological and cultural skills needed to pursue their studies on the different courses offered at LISAA. The human and intercultural dimension is at the heart of this teaching project.
The programme relies on technical bases developed by the students during their art studies in China. It is led by the French-Syrian artist Manhal Issa, who is a graduate of the University of Paris VII in New Media, the Versailles École des Beaux-Arts in Sculpture and the Damascus Fine Arts School in Painting.
Individual student monitoring of one hour every six weeks allows students to be supported in the definition of their appropriation of a new culture and the definition of their project for the future.
Alongside this programme, Chinese students follow French language and culture classes. Exchanges also take place between France and China. For example, Emmanuelle Torck, Director of the Interior Architecture and Design School at LISAA Paris, is planning to travel to visit the school’s partners in Beijing between the 24th November and 1st December.
