The Department of Fine Arts is vibrantly interdisciplinary, combining technical training in artistic production with high levels of conceptual and creative thinking.
The Department is situated in the cultural centre of Johannesburg, itself, the art centre of the country which hosts numerous major national and international exhibitions.
The Fine Arts department takes its location in Johannesburg seriously. As as a result there is an exciting series of site specific components to the course as well as a dynamic exhibitions programme that consistently looks beyond the boom gates of the academy. This combined with the rigorous studio based programme as well as academic excellence, gives students a range of options to explore and critically play with.
As we believe that Fine Arts education extends beyond the academy, we encourage our students to participate in this wider art arena. This coupled with the combination of conceptually and technically challenging studio practice and rigorous academic curricula, equips our graduates with the skills to excel in many different fields.
