The fine arts degree at Umea Academy of Fine Arts give a
practical and theoretical competence to work as a professional
artist in Sweden and overseas. The programs focuses on the
individual students artistical projects which develop together with
the academy's tutorial team. The school, which was founded in 1987,
has complete workshops for wood, metal, plaster, bronze, grahical,
photo, video, sound and computer based artistical forms.
The degree is a typically project and workshop orientated with a
number of international working artists and guest teachers. This is
reflected in the creative diversiveness of contemporary art. We see
that collaboration over land and cultural bounderies as an
important part of the artistical and critical reflexive education
at all levels. The critical artistic potential and diversive way of
thinking, culture and free expression are at focus.
