Bachelor Fine Arts

Discovering the various fields and movements of contemporary art by developing one’s own artistic expression. Such is the opportunity offered by this Bachelor programme to young, passionate artists wishing to perfect their technique, experiment with discourse and consolidate a critical stance. Students benefit from practical and theoretical supervision provided by major actors of the contemporary art scene.

Thanks to state-of-the-art infrastructure, workshops with acknowledged artists and courses provided by experienced practitioners, the students gradually become seasoned in numerous techniques (etching, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, sound, screen printing, lithography) and means of expression (performance, video, installation, new media or exhibition design). Theory also plays a major role, supported by studio visits and exhibitions as well as a host of multidisciplinary lectures within ECAL.

From pure artistic practice to exhibition curatorship, via writing, teaching or research, the range of opportunities is all the wider by creating an exceptional portfolio. This programme is also a gateway to the Master Fine Arts at ECAL or in another institution.
