The School of Visual Arts of the Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts (ALBA) has a new director, Jalal Toufic, and, consequently, a new program that stresses the relation of art and thought, more specifically of art-provoking thought and thought-provoking art. The languages of instruction are English and French. New faculty members include Ali Cherri, Ghassan Salhab, Tamara Al-Samerraei, and Hassan Zahreddine. This year’s visiting artists’ workshops will be given by Akram Zaatari, Samir Sayegh, and Rania Stephan, among others. The year-long seminar taught by Jalal Toufic, “Art-Provoking Thought,” is open to the public. New students are admitted to the program in both the Fall and Spring semesters.

Deadline for registration to the Spring Semester: January 8, 2016.
