Innovative pedagogy combining state-of-the-art techniques and traditional know-how ARTFX offers an innovative pedagogical program.
The courses are in the form of workshops, using the principle of the inverted classes to promote active learning and initiative throughout a project.
-Learning the most up-to-date techniques on advanced software.
- Developing fine art skills and building artistic culture (sculpting, 3D modeling, drawing, photography, concept art, video game creation, etc.).
Students are actively involved in the learning process.
The objectives of the ARTFX program are based as much on know-how as on the personal development of each student: autonomy, maturity, professionalism, culture, artistic and technical abilities, creation, production, innovation, curiosity and solidarity.
