L'Institut Supérieur des Arts Appliqués (LISAA)

Recognized by the Ministry of Culture, L'Institut Supérieur des Arts Appliqués (LISAA) trains top-notch designers who are perfectly at ease with 21st century technology.  In small workshops, the students gradually reach a professional level by the methods of the school that have proven themselves for over 20 years.

Lecturers, teachers, jury members and former students all participate in school life, forming an essential link between the student world and the professional environment of the applied arts.

LISAA has set a goal to train high-level creative students in:

Art Education including the acquisition of the basics of drawing, color and design and orientation workshops allowing the initiation and experimentation in the areas of applied art: graphic design, graphic design, interior architecture, design and fashion.

Graphic Design through involvement in the development of communication media through the sketch, the use of computer software for creating and preparing documents, production for print, web design or multimedia production.

Note: French is mandatory to study at LISAA and students should be highly motivated with an interest in applied arts.
