September 2011, the Bachelor Fine Arts, Minerva Art Academy starts with an English spoken class for international and Dutch students who would like to expand their professional scope.
The emphasis in this course is on Autonomy. Autonomous can be translated as free and independent. If you choose Fine Art, you are choosing to devote yourself fully - as a visual artist - to exploring your own imagination and fascinations. Firstly you'll be your own client and employee. You will determine which artistic domain(s) to conquer and what medium(s) to focus on whether that's painting, drawing, graphics or photography, sculpture, electronic media or installation. The program aims to train professional artists. Today’s artist is not limited to one specific medium, or technique, but has instead many instruments to bring his or her message across.
