President’s Welcome

The China Academy of Art is the most influential academy of fine arts with the most complete range of degree offerings and programs of study in China. It houses a diverse pool of artistic talent, has a distinctive structure integrating theory and practice, focuses on human care and social needs, and combines modern technical and cultural disciplines with traditional artistic ones. The academy features the study of theories of fine arts, architecture, film and new media, which constitute the humanities and reflect the Chinese national spirit and creative theories of the era.

The Academy was founded by the renowned educator Mr. Cai Yuanpei in 1928 promoting fine arts education to replace religion in the then war-torn China. Thus, fine arts has been put to the height of religion in this institution for almost eight decades. The academy has fostered many renowned artists who have become major artistic forces in the country, making it one of the most prestigious art institutions in the country.

At the beginning of this new millennium, we are striving to become one of the most prominent art institutions in the world. We sincerely hope that artists and art scholars from all over the world can join us to share our rich heritage and in the renaissance of this great institution in the future.
