Within this course you learn the various techniques for expressing yourself visually, how you can discover and use your visual abilities and how to convert your ideas and emotions into shapes.
The Bachelor of Fine Art course offers you an opportunity to study as individually as possible. From the second year, you have access to studio space, where you will be able to develop your talents to the optimum. The course is practical and substantive. Authenticity, curiosity and amazement are highly important. The development of your own visual-expressive criteria, demands and rules form the starting point for your artistic vision, and therefore your work.

The course is taught largely in Dutch, with a small percentage in English. It consists to a large extent of self-study, for which you receive individual supervision and guidance by visual artists and other professionals. You also take theory and practical lessons. If possible, your theory knowledge is tested in written tests. At the end of each term, your lecturer assesses each practical subject, after which you are granted credits for the appropriate subjects. The lecturers also jointly evaluate your practical work at the end of the term. They then formulate a study advice on the basis of this.
