The École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts provides education and training of a high academic and technical standard to students planning to develop a career in the visual arts. The five-year curriculum is made up of two consecutive “cycles”, the first lasting three years and the second two years, in which students learn and progress in the fundamental practical and theoretical components of artistic creation while acquiring in-depth understanding of what is involved in making art today.
Education and training are structured around artistic practice studios run by renowned artists.
The work students do in these studios is a central, fundamental component of the program.
Studios favor practice diversity, multiple fields of experimentation and crossdisciplinary artistic development.
