Brief History

The school goes through several phases, the first being between 1926 - 1933, followed by temporary removal from Timisoara (1933 - 1949), caused by the Second World War.

In 1990 the school is named the Academy of Visual Arts "Ioan Andreescu" and start making compatible curricula and university management with those of similar institutions in Europe.

Also from this period, the school policy is radically changed: international partnerships is important, their purpose being to promote mobility of students and teachers to enhance professional training of graduates and improve the quality of learning.
