Top course in fine art

You probably wanted to be an artist for as long as you can remember. The Bachelor of Fine Art 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) top 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 top 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.

In BEAR you study in a tutorial group, together with students from all over the world, including exchange students. The Bachelor of BEAR Fine Art in Arnhem is taught in English, but a number of modules can also be taken in Dutch.

By the time you graduate, you will have developed into a visual artist with your own signature and be able to give your work and the world meaning and relevance.
