Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux Study Programme

L'Ecole des Beaux Arts de Bordeaux involves young artists and designers in a personalized teaching programme, with a committed teaching staff, which is artistically innovative, interdisciplinary and professional. This objective is set for each student with the support of teachers, artists and theoreticians - who play an active professional role nationally and internationally - giving students a two-fold grasp on invention as well as critical skills in the contemporary art & media and design fields. The school is specialized in Art & media and Design and qualifies students for the DNAP (National Diploma of Plastic Arts) after 3 years of study and the DNSEP (National Graduate Diploma of Plastic Expression) after 5 years of study. The DNSEP is currently in the process of being recognized as the equivalent of a Master's degree.

The programme phase consists essentially of a demanding and ambitious study programme. Intense individual or collective atelier experiences in the fields of art and design interface with critical analysis and exchange nurtured by specialized theoretical seminars. The students debate and exchange with leading contemporary figures - French or international - who participate in workshops and lectures. This program develops the critical faculties of each student enabling them to actively engage in contemporary confrontation, acquire an understanding of the major issues of modernity and a knowledge of and dialogue with active sectors, as they develop notions of new contexts. The school is already well-known for its innovative international exchange program and opportunities for research abroad. Its dual focus on the international and ultra-local levels and awareness of the changing production conditions for the creative world, have been priorities for many years. At the end of their studies, all students construct both artistic and critical life projects.
