Exchange programme in Visual Arts
Campus Brussels / Sint-Lukas

When choosing the Graphic Storytelling programme, you'll learn to develop your graphic and narrative skills with a great emphasis on drawing and how to develop your unique style.


In the Graphic Storytelling program, students learn to develop their graphic and narrative skills. The various studio-based classes of Illustration, Drawing and Sequential Art all teach technical aspects of drawing and new technologies for diverse media, both for print and digital media. Students are trained in various storytelling techniques and creative writing.

Programme for exchange students

Our international Autumn semester is dedicated to both fiction and non fiction. Students choose illustration or sequential techniques, and focus on learning to work with narratives — using existing stories and/or writing personal ones. The weekly schedule also includes drawing classes and elective courses.

During our international Spring semester, students work on editorial illustration, the movement of characters, and developing a narrative concept into a multiple page publication. The weekly schedule also includes drawing and Contemporary Media classes, and short workshops on e.g. bookbinding or printing techniques.
