In addition to providing curricula in higher level art and design education the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts of Lyon also has a preparatory class that prepares its students to pass entrance examinations to higher and advanced art schools. The École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts of Lyon is a public establishment for cultural cooperation whose activities are dedicated to higher art education and research in the visual and plastic arts.

It is a state certified establishment, and receives support from the City of Lyon, the French Minister for Culture, the Regional Direction for Cultural Affairs and the Rhône-Alpes Regional council.

Located in the centre of Lyon, in the neighbourhood of St Jean, and situated in the Annex of the Town Hall (mairie annexe du 5e arrondissement), the preparatory class of the École nationale supérieure des beaux- arts of Lyon ensures a general art curriculum with the aim of preparing students for admission into higher education art establishments.

Our school participates in the national network of public preparatory schools through its membership of the APPEA association (Association des responsables des classes préparatoires publiques aux écoles d’arts) — for more information visit the APPEA website.

Our students have enjoyed a 100% success rate for entrance examinations since 2006.
