Vocational Training VISUAL

Except courses, workshops and weekends there is the 5-year Professional Training for those who seek further development.


Training Vision

Arts Academy Friesland trains students to become professional artists. The professional field is a dynamic field that mostly develops interfaces between different disciplines and areas of society. Within this field graduate students have to choose position and create their own space. This requires a developed professional attitude and vision. A vision that goes beyond their own work, but which also puts this in an art historical context, within society.

Visit our website to find which subjects are taught there and how the program is constructed.
