Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts, or LAFA, is an art school in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, China.


The school was founded in 1938 as Luxun Academy of Arts by Chinese Communist Party leaders, including Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai, in the town of Yan'an, Shaanxi Province.[1] The school was moved to Shenyang in 1940, span off its music department in 1953 (which later became Shenyang Conservatory of Music) and was renamed Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts in 1958.[2][3]

The composers of the original Lu Xun Academy in Yan'an and Shenyang include Ma Ke (composer) who composed the opera The White-Haired Girl, Chen Zi composer of the 1954 Liu Hulan (opera) and others.[4]
