Founded in 1821 and currently headed up by Alexis Georgacopoulos, the ECAL offers courses of study at bachelor and master level in the field of visual communication, art and design. The quality of its teaching and its international reputation make the ECAL one of the most prestigious schools on the global art and design scene. This is why around 600 students representing more than 40 nationalities choose this institution for their course of study.
The ECAL showcases its work all over the world at trade shows, exhibitions and conferences, as well as the Pompidou Centre in Paris, Cooper Union in New York and Design Days in Dubai. Events such as these are a way of promoting the work done by students on the one hand and raising the profile of the school on the other, whilst coming face to face with the approaches of other artists.
