About this program

Study a Bachelor's in Fine Art in the Netherlands

The bachelor of Fine Art will guide you on the road to becoming a professional visual artist. An artist is driven by curiosity and the desire to create things that haven’t been seen before. An artist is curious and eager and strives to take an independent and autonomous position in the world. Do you recognise that ambition and are you passionate about art? Do you want to work in multiple disciplines, with a wide range of artist-teachers in a highly international studio environment? The Fine Art bachelor’s programme at Minerva Art Academy welcomes you.

During this bachelor's programme you will learn to materialise your ideas, feelings and fascination in images, settings or installations, using different materials, techniques and media. You will be confronted with many possible aspects of contemporary art: ideas and concepts, media and domains, materials and techniques, artist positions and roles, studio practices and professional practices. You will be guided in finding the answer to the question what it means for you to be a professional artist.
