Fantoni Art School was founded in 1898. To date, we have helped train around 25.000 students across our different courses.
The courses we provide are designed and delivered by experts and practicing artists to enable the artists of the future to unleash their creative potential by developing their artistic skills and insights.
Our objectives are to advance learning, knowledge and professional competence particularly in the fields of fine and applied arts, in the principles and practice of art and design in their relation to industrial and commercial processes and social developments and other related subjects. This is achieved through teaching, research and collaboration with local companies and businesses.
The Artistic High School offers three different courses on fine art, architectural design and audiovisual design, while the Vocational School offers courses on graphic design, interior design and art restoration.
Our community goes beyond our students and teachers, since it is also comprised of the tutors in the Employment Office who help students find career opportunities, a partnership with more than 400 companies to offer students a real work experience, as well as the cooperation with local associations and institutions, and the creation of the association Fantoni Hub. These initiatives contribute to making our vocational school a cornerstone for the local and regional creative and artistic field.
Over the years, our school has been involved in several international projects, which have enabled us to create a network of cooperation with other European institutions from Latvia, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Finland, Greece and Czech Republic among others. Every year, we organize exchange programmes for school pupils and staff.
A wide range of activities are supported, including job shadowing and professional development courses for staff, invited experts and individual and group mobility for pupils to enhance their professional and soft skills. To this day, over three hundred students and forty teachers have taken part in these initiatives.
One aspect of these programmes includes hosting our European partners at the school and organizing individual and group internships, cultural visits and staff courses.
