The Art program from Temple University is primarily designed for those who don’t have an art background, but we are also equipped for students who have already studied art formally. 

Key facts:

We offer everything from foundation courses such as drawing, painting and two-dimensional and three-dimensional design on up to an advanced level of study. Art majors are also required to take digital-based courses involving digital photography, computers, and the Internet. These are essential skills for finding a job in the art field and moving your career forward.

We usually have students from five or six different countries studying in one classroom. They learn how to inspire others, not just through verbal communication but also through their work.

By inspiring others, you share a connection to what they create as well. Tokyo is known as a center of design and fashion, and lots of contemporary art comes out of this city, making it an amazing place to study art. If you want to study art in English in Tokyo, TUJ is really the best option around. We view all of Tokyo as our campus, so we work with students to utilize the dynamics of the city as a resource.
