All art in the world hinges on the soul (the poetry, the spirit), which is the hardest and most elusive of all and simultaneously the easiest and most accessible.
For the Fine Art Arnhem (BEAR) course, ArtEZ is looking for bold thinkers and makers, who want to work in an environment where they can experiment freely and radically.
Throughout the year you can make an appointment for an individual portfolio check. During this check, of about thirty minutes, you make contact with a teacher and student and we’ll discuss with you your work and the possibilities to study at Fine Art Arnhem (BEAR). We will give you extensive information about the ins and outs of the program and advice on how you can prepare well for the exam. It is also possible to request a portfolio conversation if you want to do one year after admission. There will be written a short report after the meeting that is to be included in the official admission. You can make an appointment by e-mail with Tjoe Fang King firstname.lastname@example.org Wednesday is the day we have reserved for this purpose.
As of the 2016-2017 academic year, students starting the formative phase of the Fine Art Arnhem (BEAR) course will be taught in English.
All our courses have language requirements. You will need to prove your language proficiency by handing in a certificate stating your level before September 1st.
In addition, for the new BEAR course, we feel it is important that you:
12 December 2018, 22 January 2019, 26 February 2019, 2 April 2019, 21 May 2019, 18 June 2019, 9 July 2019.
On the admission day you will have an interview with members of the admission committee. This committee consists of lecturers and students from the Fine Art Arnhem (BEAR) programme. During the interview you will present your homework assignments and a portfolio of your own work. This could include drawings, pictures, photographic series, animations, websites, furniture, clothing, posters, etc. You will explain these and discuss the ideas behind your work. Also bring along designs and sketches that provide insight into your creative process.The admission committee with whom you have the interview will advise the examination committee on whether or not to admit you.
You will be notified of whether you have been admitted within three working weeks. If you are not admitted, we will attempt to provide you with insight into the reasons for this. Admission is only valid for the course for which you have enrolled. If you wish to apply for admission to a course or specialisation at another location you must register for this separately. The admission is only valid for the academic year directly following the entrance examination.
Enrolment for the Bachelor of Fine Art (BEAR) is done through Studielink. You will then receive information about the date that you will be expected at the academy. You will also receive a homework assignment from the course and a questionnaire (CV).
