Continuing education

Since 2011, the law has allowed artists and more generally creative arts workers with an authorship status to benefit from continued education. The École Supérieure d’Art et de Design de Reims offers this professional public many modules built on the same artistic values and public service, and also in its domains of excellence. The teaching is given with the teachers and technicians that are active in the ESAD.

Artists, performing artists, people in professional retraining, jobseekers or those attached to the Maison des Artistes: take advantage of these offers to boost your practice in a new field, update your technical knowledge, or take the time to think as a group, with a qualified teacher, about the artistic concerns that you have.
Tailor made training courses are also available for companies.
