École des beaux-arts — Palais des Beaux-Arts

Heir to the Royal Academies of painting and sculpture founded under the Ancien Régime, located in the heart of Saint-Germain des Prés in an exceptional architectural ensemble, the Beaux-Arts de Paris is a state public institution overseen by the Ministry of Culture and Communication. The curriculum is based on studio work, diversity in practices and international exchange. The school delivers a 1st-cycle diploma after three years of study, and the diplôme national supérieur d’arts plastiques (DNSAP) at the end of the fifth year, equivalent to a master’s degree. A post-graduate research cycle has completed this curriculum since the first term of 2012. It places a strong emphasis on new technologies as well as on the transmission of more traditional techniques and the study of theory.
The Beaux-Arts de Paris represents over 500 students, 100 professors, artist-teachers and technicians, over 70 international exchange agreements with art schools all over the world, a media library offering 45,000 works and a collection of over 450,000 artworks, including the second largest collection of drawings after the Louvre’s.
