The Ecole Supérieure des Arts St-Luc is a school of plastic art. Settled in Brussels, Its teaching, given out in 3 or 5 years as the case may be, combines the basic elements of an artistic approach and the professional skates to which our future graduates will have to subject themselves.
It's an art school aiming to shape creative talents in a way both coherent and challenging, overseen by academics, researchers and professors from relevant academic disciplines.
Combining genuine education and training to creation, ESA Saint-Luc participates in research programmes oriented towards jobs in design, habitat and interior design, ecodesign, innovative policies or even new forms of graphic and visual communications, as well as contemporary narration. Programmes which stimulate not only artistic practice, but also reflection and research, in view of providing students with general culture, a critical sense and a commitment to rigor.
