The collaboration between The Margate School and one of the oldest art schools in France, the renowned École Supérieure d’Art et Design Le Havre-Rouen (ESADHaR) means that the French national network of art schools (ANdÉA) and its pedagogic approach is now opened up to British art education.
This Anglo-French partnership is one of the innovative approaches to art education which draws many people to The Margate School's European Fine Art Masters Programme. TMS students qualify for free accommodation at the ESADHaR campus in Le Havre and Rouen as well as access to workshops and state of the art facilities. French language sessions feature as part of the course and students not only have the opportunity to collaborate with French students and artists but also participate in the School’s community outreach programme and arts events.
ESADHaR has a strong interest in innovation in art education and project-based learning and many years of experience developing challenging master-level programmes.
The École Supérieure d’Art et Design Le Havre-Rouen (ESADHaR) was created in December 2010 by the common will of the cities of Le Havre and Rouen to unite two art schools: the École Régionale des Beaux-Arts de Rouen and the École Supérieure d’Art du Havre. ESADHaR has two campuses: one in Rouen, the other in Le Havre. This Public Establishment of Cultural Cooperation is an Establishment of Public Administration devoted to training in Art and Graphic Design under the education authority of the Ministry of Culture and Communication.
