New art school moving ahead

The Art & Design Institute, a new private art school, has received approval from the Education Ministry’s accreditation commission, its chairwoman Vladimíra Dvořáková announced Wednesday. The school, based in Prague, will open its doors in 2014 and is to be led by the former head of the National Gallery Milan Knížák. The school received accreditation for four years. The project still has to be officially approved by the ministry. It is expected that around 200 students will be accepted, with a maximum of 15 taking classes in individual “studios”. A semester is to cost 35 thousand crowns. Students will be able to begin applying this autumn.
