ArtEZ Academy of Art & Design Zwolle

From early in the morning until late in the evening, at the Academy of Art & Design Zwolle you'll find students hard at work in their studios. If you come to study here, you'll be collaborating a lot with students from other courses. As a result, you'll learn to take a different perspective on your work, the work of others and the world around you.

Storytelling visual artists

By telling stories, you can add something to society. During your studies and after graduation, you'll learn to adopt a conscious position as a visual artist. 

We challenge our students to shape their own stories: stories of substance that provide the basis for the creative process. The different courses find their own expressions for those stories – for example, in terms of personal development, education, research and creative practice. Together they contribute to a sustainable and inspiring artistic climate
