Multidisciplinary Workshops Media
Teachers : Jérôme Degive, Sabine Voglaire
The work of this workshop therefore raises questions of meaning and image structure, they introduce typography, layout, the text/image relationship, supports, materials, tools and gestures through devious means. The challenge: to be able to confront the challenges of the media by discovering personalized approaches and working methods.
The objective is to discover the challenges of visual language by experimenting with specific approaches and personalized working methods. To develop the notions of point of view and meaning. To exploit different mediums, to experience one's affinities in order to be able to make appropriate choices according to the projects. To learn to consider each job as an opportunity for additional experience without expecting a specific result. To get rid of his preconceptions and to sharpen his curiosity. To understand its mode of operation, its strengths, its assets, to develop the singularity of its work and its knowledge within individual and collective projects.
Questioning the meaning and structure of images, they introduce typography, layout, the diversity of supports, materials, tools and gestures, means and spaces of demonstrations. The student learns to question what drives him in his research. To gradually develop projects, the content and form of which he determines outside of any specifically determined orientation. This multidisciplinarity is also stimulated by a collective project, in which they are invited to take an active part, to share their know-how and knowledge, to collaborate.

The development of the personal project is the objective of this pedagogy and continues in future years. Research, experimentation, time, discussion, detours, doubts, involvement, motivation are an integral part of the educational process. This allows the student to build himself, to construct a working method and a singular reflection. From all-out exploration and short Bac1 exercises, attention in Bac 2 is paid to content and time management. Projects are longer and require more commitment.
The workshop will invite the student to get involved in a reflection induced by a proposed theme. This proposal contains constraints and a different path, i.e. marked exercises. The graphic form is not premeditated but will depend on the project itself. The student will be able to produce an edition, an installation, a video, a series of images, a performance, an object, sound, a text, etc. Without being a "specialist", the student summons his different practices in the service of a statement, a reflection, a content. In order to open the perspectives of reflections and practices, the references proposed in the workshop will be transversal, they will be linked as much to graphics, typography and digital practices as to art, painting, installation, performance, sculpture, design, architecture, video, cinema, storytelling, drawing, illustration, literature etc.
At the end of the year:
The student will have continued to develop his graphic practice (form and know-how).
Will have grasped the issues related to the relevance between a form and its content (notion of meaning).
Will have developed a unique attitude and thinking (notion of independence).
Will have acquired a series of transversal references on which he/she can rely for the development of his/her work in Bac 3 (notion of culture).
Teachers : Isabelle Jossa, Marie-Christophe Lambert,
The student, on the strength of his/her prior knowledge, develops an autonomous personal practice with the tools of his choice. The workshop aims to support these unique practices.
The course, thanks to a progressive methodology, pushes to the affirmation of a personal research, the student then defining his/her own constraints, his/her limits and the territory of his practice.
In addition to exhibition visits, testimonials, library appointments, the teachers provide multiple references each week adapted to each work.
The desired achievements are: autonomy, analysis, critical thinking, risk-taking, experimental research and reflective work based on each person's practices. The student develops a working method, clarifies his universe and situates his/her practice by nourishing it with references from contemporary creation, but also transmits and communicates it.
