About Fine Art

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.

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. 

While students learn a wide range of techniques and skills in the Fine Arts discipline, we actively encourage an interdisciplinary approach to art making.

Amongst the many facilities are:

  • Painting, drawing and sculpture studios
  • A print making workshop
  • Photographic darkrooms and studios
  • Digital Multimedia studio
  • Wood and metal workshops
  • The Point of Order exhibition and project space
