Critical Approaches to Culture + Communications

A Weblog by Ron Burnett (Founded in 1994 and now celebrating 23 Years!!)

This site began as one of the first academic sites in Canada when the World Wide Web was in its early phase of development. I have maintained it through many iterations since 1994.

China Art Academy

Founded in 1928, the CAA is both traditional and profoundly innovative. They mix courses in calligraphy with courses in advanced industrial design. Their philosophy is based on the premise that contemporary art always reflects to varying degrees, a set of important historical antecedents. Their campus in Hangzhou is a mixture of traditional studios and beautifully designed workshops and open spaces.
