Founded in 2014, AIP is a collective of artists, designers, and educators who came together to host holistic international experiences - teaching students new skills and ways of seeing and responding to the world. AIP is rooted in the interdisciplinary and experimental methodology of the Bauhaus in Europe and the American Black Mountain College.
We believe we can make, learn, and grow together, for an interconnected and collaborative world. We value and support all types of making and generating ideas. We believe in the connection between skill building and conceptual thinking.
We believe learning happens every day. We are a community looking to grow with students, teachers, thinkers, and makers who believe disciplines can overlap and learn from one another. We believe in content and craft. We believe travel opens your eyes. We believe in learning on all levels.
We believe in AIP- and that our programs can make a difference in your life.
We can change the world and want to do it with you.
Who We Are.
