Paris

This intensive course prepares students for entrance examinations to art academies in France and abroad.

This intensive course prepares students for entrance examinations to art academies in France and abroad. Aside from enabling them to acquire the fundamental artistic bases, this year also offers courses in photography, illustration and animation. Therefore it allows students to establish an extensive portfolio that they will be able to present French public schools or foreign art schools:

  • l’ENSAD (École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs)
  • les Écoles Nationales des Beaux-Arts
  • l’École des Métiers de l’Image
  • l’École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle (ENSCI)
  • l’École Supérieure des Arts et Techniques (ESAT)
  • les Gobelins

The Preparatory class is also the natural route to take for students wishing to move towards illustration or animation.
