NAIS has created a NAP master art cultivation program for those young students dreaming to be admitted to the world-renowned art institutions. This program is aimed to cultivate students with full potential in the field of art and has a solid cultural foundation.

The team of NAP is made up of master/doctoral experts from leading art institutions around the world, such as the University of the Arts in London, the Royal College of Art, the Central School of Art and Design, and so on. In order to help each student plan and realize the future of the art road, they combine the situation of art education and learning characteristics at home and abroad and provide students with comprehensive art professional learning resources. Based on this, a set of professional curriculums have been set which are suitable for our students.

Following the traditional model of foreign art education and synchronizing with foreign art professional institutions, Master Art Project (NAP) covers a full range of multi-level courses, including product design, spatial design, visual design, landscape design, jewelry design, graphic illustration, pure art, art writing, etc.

  • NAP Course Introduction

    The aim of NAP Program is to cultivate students to learn the main themes and skills of art and design through a structured and thematic approach. The initial design of this course is to encourage students to explore themselves and then explore the relationships with people, the environment and possession of objects. Therefore, this program can help students express their feelings about people and things in the world in the form of art. Besides, students can also learn how other arts and designs achieve this by experimenting with different media, tools, and skills. The courses of this program are carefully designed to help students find their artistic inspiration and artistic expertise by enhancing their comprehensive abilities, skills and interests.
