The Fine Arts programme of Royal Academy of Art, The Hague embraces history and traditions and root our discourse firmly in the contemporary while researching and imagining the future of fine art as an indispensable contributor to culture, society and economy.

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. Your individual choice for the content, the form and the contextualisation of your artwork will stand in the foreground. Like other programmes offered at the KABK, the Bachelor Fine Arts gives you access to a wide a range of courses provided by Leiden University.

Professional Perspective

As a visual artist, you will make art to give meaning and significance to life, thereby fulfilling an important role in society. You reveal hidden qualities, offer critical comments on social phenomena and are often actively involved, either concretely or theoretically. You do this through tangible objects as well as thought processes, performances, publications, lectures and artistic interventions in political, economic and social settings. In addition to creating work it is important for you to successfully stake your claim in artistic and social environments as a researcher, producer, networker, organiser and manager – all at the same time.
