British Columbia (BC) is located in western Canada and is an important gateway between North America to the Asia-Pacific region. In particular, the metropolitan hub of Vancouver, B.C. functions and has functioned as the main linkage in long chain of exchange between Asia and North America. With its stunning scenery and pleasant climate, Vancouver, B.C., has always been an important base of North American Centers for art education, with five international acclaimed universities and many art colleges calling Vancouver home.


In 2019, the International Arts Academy – IAA, offers the 2019 International Art Summer Camp to be held at the UBC (University of British Columbia).
