Fine ArtCourse Type: Undergraduate Programmes
The Undergraduate course in Fine Arts was founded in 1990. The teaching methods focus on the student’s development towards an autonomous project, monitored by the teacher in a tutorial regime. It is characterized by the importance given to laboratory and experimental practice, in the workshops and studio workspaces.
The main objective is to train professionals in the field of contemporary artistic creation, providing them with the capacity for conceptual problematics and experimentation.
The teachers, who are renowned artists in Portugal and internationally, develop personal, artistic and academic work. Every year there is a public presentation, an exhibition of the students’ work in Art Centres or Museums.
The works of former students have been publicly recognized in the art world and honoured with significant prizes.
