Now in its 10th year, nearly 3,000 students have passed through SCAD Lacoste, and 79 are on site today, living, studying and working in the restored spaces. The total population of Lacoste is about 300, 100 of whom are students or staff, and the remaining 200 villagers, guests, tourists or part time residents. Within its ancient walls, SCAD Lacoste offers a variety of modern facilities, including two computer labs and teaching studios dedicated to painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and photography come well-equipped. Students are not limited to the studio and you can see a number working al fresco with panoramic views of the Luberon Valley right before them. Unsurprisingly this historic locale is still a magnet for contemporary artists and writers looking for inspiration.
