The Foundation year (MANAA) takes place over one year. It allows each student to forge solid artistic bases that will be essential throughout their career as a designer.

THREE TEACHING AIMS

  • To reveal the creativity of each student through the learning of fundamental techniques: drawing, colour, composition, volume, perspective and graphic design.
  • To raise students’ awareness of artistic culture in order to bring them the curiosity and open-mindedness required for a qualitative and enduring education.
  • To allow the student to find their place amongst the different design professions and therefore prepare and choose, in complete confidence, which specialisation to follow.

PREPARATION FOR COMPETITIVE EXAMS FOR HIGHER EDUCATION FINE ART AND DESIGN SCHOOLS

Upon completion of the Foundation year, each student will have acquired the necessary skills to apply for the competitive exams for national higher education schools (decorative arts, design…).

CONTINUING TO A BTS COURSE

Continuous assessment during the Foundation year allows students to join BTS classes in spatial design or graphic design / Print at LISAA Strasbourg.
