'For me, the most important aspect of studying Design, was the opportunity to find myself as a professional while developing my artistic skills. Through combining theoretical lessons with practical components, I was able to explore new ways of boosting my artistic competences. 

My studies at the Minerva Art Academy of Hanze UAS prepared me for the real professional field by giving me the opportunity to join numerous projects. In 2019 I had the chance to join the massive Noorderzon festival of Performing Arts and Society, where movies made by Minerva students were shown. For me this was a great chance to share my work with large audience and to further develop my network.

Currently, I am following a Master of Arts programme at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam. This would not have been possible without the experience I gained through studying at Hanze UAS. It has been great to develop personal projects based on my artistic perception, and the constant consultation with inspiring tutors at the art academy has helped me to really progress as an artist.

Are you looking for a place to explore your creative skills and abilities? I assure you that the Minerva Art Academy, with its awesome diverse workshops and super friendly atmosphere, is able to motivate you to explore different ways of creating artistic projects!'
