The teaching of the first year aims to the deepening of drawing techniques, the discovery of various illustrative techniques, an introduction to narration, as well as the acquisition of computer graphics techniques essential to the realization of graphic projects.

The second year deepens graphic techniques and storytelling. Creative workshops allow the student to work on a more personal design. At the end of the year, he will have to choose his option among the three proposals.

The third year of training is very oriented by end-of-study projects (PFE). Each student builds his project according to the chosen option, in order to be able to canvass companies or production companies with a book of works of a high graphic and artistic level.

What opportunities are there after
the Graphic Arts Illustration course ?

The numerous and complementary disciplines make graphic arts a world of specialists who work alone or in teams depending on the projects. We thus find children’s or advertising illustrators, comic book authors and artists, storyboarders or concept artists who create graphic universes.
