September 5th, 2022 – Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Paris

Givenchy Parfums has made a commitment to foster the energy of youth and to provide opportunities that bring them new perspectives and career paths. From 2021, Givenchy parfums is the partner of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris and its Via Ferrata preparatory class, which enables students to gain admission to the best art schools.

Selected from over 650 applications, there are 48 students in the Errigal class this year. These young talents come from all social and cultural backgrounds, from all over France, and some from abroad: Colombia, Poland, Germany, and Ukraine.

The programme aims to prepare them for the competitive examinations of the major art schools. To this end, the students will have the benefit of theoretical courses, creative workshops, and artistic reflections in the workshops located at the two sites of the school (Paris/Saint-Ouen). Cultural visits to museums, galleries, art centres, artists' studios, and production sites will be organised throughout the year to enable students to discover a range of artistic disciplines.
Students will also have access to the resources of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts: library, lectures, exhibitions, and the digital centre.

A programme rich in encounters and teaching which, we hope, will enable students to gain admission to the schools they wish to attend at the end of the year.

We wish the students and all the team at Via Ferrata an excellent start to this academic year!​
