Overview

You will acquire skills and knowledge that will enable you to work independently as a visual artist and understand your own work as a part of the context of contemporary art and society, where artists may adopt multi-faceted roles and profiles.

Education

The Fine Arts programme at the University of the Arts Helsinki focuses on artistic activities and theoretical studies. The Academy of Fine Arts focuses on independent art, giving the students the flexibility to pursue their personal aspirations when selecting courses and planning their curriculum. 

Individual guidance and independent artistic work are integral to the studies, but group instruction, workshops, field trips and different kinds of projects are also important and increase the sense of community within the academy.

Public exhibition of one’s own art in exhibitions, public space and other various contexts is an essential part of the studies. Students familiarise themselves with exhibition activities and practices at the Academy of Fine Arts galleries, Exhibition Laboratory and Project Room, which improves their ability to take part in exhibition productions of various sizes.

The subject areas of the Degree Programme in Fine Arts are Sculpture, Painting, Printmaking and Time and Space Arts. The subject area of Time and Space Arts allows you to specialise in moving image, photography, or site and situation specific art.
