Fine Art and Design in Education



During the course, you will devote an equal amount of time to artistry and teaching. There is a reason for this. By creating your own art and being a role model to students, you will be able to convey your knowledge and skills to others.

Developing your artistic talent

About half of your studies will be devoted to the visual arts, in the field of both autonomous art and design. The development of your own artistic talent is the primary objective here. You will also study and analyse the theory of art and culture and will deepen and broaden your knowledge of the background of artists from both the past and present, of architecture, media arts and design. You will learn to see with new eyes, delve into the creative processes and will develop your own vision of art and design. In addition, you will take theory courses in subjects such as the reception, aesthetics and philosophy of art.

Learning to teach

Of course, didactics and the practical aspects of teaching will be thoroughly covered. Through various projects and internships, you will experience exactly what it is like to work at schools, cultural institutions and museums. You will support students in the development of their artistic potential using the proper pedagogical and didactic knowledge and skills.


Teamwork and an enterprising attitude are important throughout the course. Students of the Bachelor of Fine Art and Design in Education, Music in Education, Dance in Education and Theatre in Education all follow a shared interfaculty ArtEZ study curriculum. You will work together on practice-oriented projects in which the relationship between the various art disciplines plays a central role. This interdisciplinary approach gives you a solid and broad foundation in your future field, whether that is in education or otherwise.
