Visual arts, Plastic arts and earth cultivation : an educational experience
For the first time in France in an art school, awareness of ecological issues is integrated into all our courses. Students have several ways to do this. They can work on the land during certain workshops, and they also have theoretical courses on biology and the living. This particularity aims to create in these future artists a different relationship to the world through biology, history, science, philosophy, agriculture and gardening. After a full year, they can develop an autonomy on how growing a culture and imagine a different future.
