The programme of Fine Arts educates students to become visual artists who are able to develop their artistry independently in an international context.
Developing professional conduct, control of work process and theoretical knowledge are key elements in this process. Self-reflection and awareness of the meaning of your own art work in context of the artistic and social world are vital conditions for the study in general and the personal development in particular. The programme of Fine Arts is divided into a propaedutic course and an advanced course. The propaedutic year includes an intensive and extensive orientation on all four tracks of the advanced course-the sections Painting, Free Graphics, Interdisciplinary Attitudes and 3D. These sections offer a climate in which students are urged to meet the boundaries of the disciplines and to exceed them. Besides the lectures given in studios, there is also focus on an intensive exhibiting programme. Inside and outside of the Academy all aspects concerning exhibiting art will be discussed. This happens in association with the student's own development. The historic development into the contemporary sociocultural situation is also discussed in lectures. Seeing that the Fine Arts are no longer bound to traditional techniques, new media play an important role in the Academy's education.
