The Bachelor of BEAR Fine Art: Base for Experiment, Art and Research at ArtEZ University of the Arts in Arnhem, is a place for experimentation at the heart of society; an international, dynamic community in which everyone learns from each other. 


You probably wanted to be an artist for as long as you can remember. The Bachelor of Fine Art at ArtEZ University of the Arts in Arnhem is the start of your new adventure. An adventure that questions and changes all your assumptions about art and about yourself. The internationally oriented BEAR (Base for Experiment, Art and Research) course offers you a place to experiment at the heart of society and contemporary art practice.

Art shapes the world and how we see it. Conversely, art is shaped by our surroundings and by the lens we look through. Art does not exist in a vacuum, it is a living breathing ecosystem in a dynamic relationship with the environment. In the BEAR Fine Art course in Arnhem, the art department forms a community.

Together we push back the boundaries of creative possibilities. It is a community for life; a community that starts during your training and will continue to motivate you throughout your career to give context, meaning and value to the paths you pursue.


After studying BEAR Fine Art in Arnhem, you can start working as a visual artist, filmmaker, photographer, curator, organizer or (art) critic.

Your research skills, self-organising capacity, creative input and autonomous thinking will also be valuable in projects in which you collaborate with planners, architects or scientists, for example.

In addition, you can choose to continue your studies in a national or international master course.
