The Orléans School of Art and Design opens its doors

Two of the three Ésad Orléans sites will open this weekend: the main site of the school, at 14 rue Dupanloup, as well as the building at 108 rue de Bourgogne in Orléans.

This public school trains an average of 300 students annually in art and design, and is interested in contemporary digital, ecological, political and technological issues.

Interact with students

Open days will be an opportunity for young people and their parents to come and talk with students from various courses (preparatory classes, early cycles, high-level design research), as well as with the student office and their co-op. But also with the members of the teaching team: teachers, coordinators, technical workshop managers, librarians…

The school will also allow visitors to discover the various technical workshops it offers (3D printing, silver photography, engraving, etc.) and student work, in the form of exhibitions.
