ARTS2, Mons – Belgium
ARTS2 is an Academy of Arts (Bachelor – Master) that is directly under the authority of the Ministry of Higher Education of the French Community of Belgium. ARTS2 has a mission to train artist-performers and creators in three fields: Visual Arts, Music, Theater.
Field of Visual Arts: The courses are organized around Workshops that regroup a coherent set of artistic, theoretical, and technical subjects. They foster the reasoned practice of a discipline, as much in its practical or technical aspects than with the resources of sensitivity and thought.
The required course “technique and technology in videography” in Bac 2 and 3 brings together students from different workshops: digital arts, visual communication, drawing, image in the middle, painting, sculpture, and engraving. All are beginners in video in Bac 2. The objective of these two years is to introduce the student to the videotext technique regardless of genre (art and video installation, documentary, and fiction). The students who wish to further their training in videotext have the opportunity of taking optional courses in Bac 3 (“Video Caso”) that highlights videotext writing) and in Master 1 and 2 (“Video package” that deals more particularly with video installation). Partnerships are also offered with La Maison Folie de Mons (who supplies professional assistance for the montage and setup of videos) as well as with the acousmatic section of the school (relations between video and music). The selected videos are essentially by Bac 3 and Master 1 / 2 students.

EESAB, Site de Quimper – France
The Art major is the strong point of EESAB – Quimper campus and thus gives it the scope and ambition of training artists. Teaching art is “custom-made” teaching that follows each person’s evolution at their own speed, on their own pathway, within multiple pedagogical possibilities that have been developed by instructor-artists or theoreticians, either collectively or individually.
Danièle Yvergniaux Director, Quimper Campus
In this workshop, students develop an artistic approach linked to the moving image and sound. The workshop has ten editing stations Final Cut / Protools, a film studio, and have the possibility of borrowing audiovisual equipment. Students participate in the workshops and come to develop their personal projects with the instructors.
Instuctors: Anne de Sterk & Christophe Le Mauff
National Art Academy of Nancy – France (ENSAN)
Founded in 1708 by the Dukes of Lorraine, ENSAN is the only one of the seven national schools to develop the largest number of degree courses (Master’s level) that are oriented to trades: art, communication, and design. Its public service approach is open and exceptional, keeping a balance between research and professionalization. It is one of the three components of the ARTEM alliance, a unique experience of interdisciplinary pedagogy.
A place of education and a cultural actor, ENSAN is present both in the Lorraine region and internationally. It develops two post-master degrees: the Offshore School, a research program in Creation and Globalization based in Shanghai, and at the national institute of typographical research.
Based on founding trends, from experimental cinema to video art as well as plastic art research through new media, studying video today (as a technical production tool) as a student at an art school falls in the framework of an approach to research and the development of one’s own language of “image movement”.
A space for the discovery and practice of plastic arts of different techniques (video, animation, new media, etc.), the video workshop at ENSAN offers a collection of professional production methods as well as a technical and theoretical accompaniment on how to use the tools and their potential in the field of contemporary art, whatever the option chosen by the student (art, communication, design).
Going beyond codes and genres while examining their history, acquiring skills with the tools through rigorous learning, sharpening their view and their discourse when meeting others: the students are led to experiment, put into practice, and produce with the many tools and techniques at their disposal.
Instruction is carried out over two periods: the first year includes – in a continuous back and forth with the history of the medium – the necessary techniques for overall knowledge of the production chain and professional realities.
In the second year, a team of teachers, who are visual artists, theoreticians and technicians, supervise students in the development of a personal project, whatever the adopted technique and referent genre.

National Art Academy Orléans – France (ESAD)
L’École Supérieure d’Art et de Design d’Orléans prepares young creators for the different professions in design and communication: designing objects, furniture, spaces, multimedia, graphics, illustration, photo, cinema, video…
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars. (Oscar Wilde)
The creator, through interdisciplinary reflection on our society and its productions, can change the notion of progress and the scenarios of consumption: public spaces, everyday objects, and communication processes must be examined in this way.
Jacqueline Febvre (Director)
DNAP 3 / Maurice HUVELIN (Animated video image instructor)
OPTION VIDÉO-ANIMATION : ”Turbulent sound image” / Subject: Hidden meanings.
Enable the student to develop the notion of an animated image and question contemporary audiovisual creation. Help the student to find a subject, scenario, and own point of view as an author. For an original and audacious audiovisual representation, while expanding the student’s graphical and/or personal space.
DNSEP 5 / Maurice HUVELIN (Animated video image instructor)
Accompany as much as possible the student in his/her approach to visual arts, which is linked to the Master’s thesis and for the presentation of his/her final personal project for graduation.
ESAD Reims – France
L’École Supérieure d’Art et de Design de Reims, one of the oldest French schools of fine arts, is well established in the XXIst century. Renowned for the excellence of its training, the school offers a exceptional pedagogy based on the involvement of professionals in the art and design industries, and is open to European exchanges and cultural globalization. Its dynamics – which spread its reputation outside of our borders – enables its students to experience various opportunities and encounters in the field of creation, research and potential studies. The ESAD of Reims is a public institution that delivers national diplomas, a guarantee of quality and of the values of public service.
Becoming an artist assumes considerable effort in the search for one’s project, and training in multiple languages and mediums used in art today. The designer pushes the limits of what can be questioned in its form, its use and its mode of conception. Food design and plant design, two specializations at ESAD, bring these questions to life. Graphic and digital design develop the interfaces for our future objects. These diverse contemporary art practices are open to each other, and enable students more responsiveness and a variety of skills with a direct link to the present-day situation.
What place will the creator find in the society of tomorrow? What will the outlines of the future artistic professions be? Higher education in art enables both the artist and the designer to quickly enter the job market and to shape his/her own career while taking into account future changes.
Claire Peillod (Directrice)
Under the pedagogic responsibility of Gérard Cairaschi, video instruction at ESAD in Reims is intended for students from the first to fifth years of study in the Art, Design, and Graphic Arts options. The course proposes a plastic arts approach to video images that is adapted to different sections. Students acquire the technical bases as well as an introduction to the history of experimental cinema and video art in the first year, which leads to more in-depth study in the following years. Workshops, theoretical classes, practical work, and work in the field make up the different stages of the course. The course offers experimental technique sessions with formal constraints and themes in order to progressively reach an advanced mastery of various systems of production techniques in video images. It also proposes experimental technique sessions focused on specific techniques on shooting, montage, and postproduction. Courses also include screenings and analysis of works in relation to the themes from the practical workshops and student subjects or personal projects, in order to develop a reflection on the astonishing evolution of practices in video images in the field of contemporary art. Video is starting to become one of the mediums most used by art students. At each step in the program and in addition to personal video projects for the final graduation project, the student is required to develop projects for workshops, for the A.R.C. (Workshop for Research and Creation), and for contests, festivals, and exhibitions.
