Bachelor Undergraduate Den Haag

Course description

Qualification Bachelor of Arts
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary The programme of Fine Arts educates students to become visual artists who are able to develop their artistry independently in an international context.
Course description 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.
Study subjects The first year is intended to introduce you to the aims and learning methods of the programme and to a wide range of disciplines including painting, drawing, printing, video, sculpture and performance. In the following years, you will explore all of the practical and theoretical facets of being an artist. Your final study phase concludes with a thesis and a solo presentation in the graduation show
Course objectives This programme will provide you with the skills, competencies, strategies and confidence needed to design your future and the future of the arts. You will become familiar with a wide range of techniques and technologies relevant for the making of art, such as painting, drawing, printing, video, sculpture and performance.
