PASSING THE ART SCHOOL COMPETITIVE EXAMS
Acquiring artistic essentials
Students benefit from individual monitoring of their work from the very beginning of the year, both in their research and in the development of their portfolio.
The week is structured around five days of lessons, amounting to around 27 hours, plus an equal quantity of work to be provided outside of the school. A viva exam takes place at the end of the first term in order for students to assess their progress, to express themselves orally and ascertain the distance that remains to be covered before the competitive exams.
Intensive preparation for the competitive exams
Teaching intensifies from January onwards. In addition to following classes, workshops and viva exams, students benefit from:
- Mock competitive exams
- Writing workshops (help with writing statements of intent and personal statements)
- Conferences led by teachers, directors of studies or directors of grande école art schools.
- Art and design workshops
Furthermore, each student is supervised by a portfolio director who helps them in the development and monitoring of their artistic portfolio to be presented at the competitive exam.
L’Atelier de Sèvres prepares students for the most prestigious art schools: Beaux-Arts (Paris, Lyon, Nantes, etc.), Arts Déco (ENSAD), ECAL, Saint Martins, La Cambre, HEAR, etc.
Atelier de Sèvres comprises 2,500m² of spaces dedicated to creation. Students work in creative workshops that then become exhibition spaces when their projects are finished. Atelier de Sèvres provides students with a photography/video studio equipped with cutting-edge technical equipment, as well as a construction workshop and an engraving studio. These self-service tools enable students to shape their creativity and projects as they wish in an ideal setting.
