The Batumi Art Teaching University is the leading educational centre in the artistic sphere. Batumi Art University is the only higher education art institution that simultaneously conducts teaching in all four directions: theatre, cinema, music, and visual art. There is two-cycle teaching at the university: BA and MA cycles. There are also some educational programs for diploma specialists.
Ballet Studio, the Institute of Art, and the Batumi Zakaria Paliashvili State Conservatory are united under the Batumi Art Teaching University.
The Institute of Art and Conservatory (later the Faculty of Art) brought up hundreds of professional artists who are successfully conducting activities within the country and abroad. They are still taking an active part in the cultural life of our city.
The educational programs are being conducted by highly qualified specialists working in Batumi and invited professors from partner higher educational institutions. They are conducting active teaching, professional-performing, and scientific activities.
