Summer Courses 2020 - open for late application!

Each year we offer one or two summer courses in some artistic field within Fine Arts. It can be in Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Performance, Video or something else.

Common for all our summer courses is that they are worth 15 ECTS. Teaching can be in Swedish or English depending on who will hold the course. Classes are held in two two-week-long periods, one in June right after the end of the spring term (week 24 and 25) and one in August (week 33 and 34). Between the two teaching periods you work individually with your own artistic work and the course ends with a group exhibition where you get the chance to exhitbit what you have been engaged in during the course.

This year we offer one course in performance (held in English) and one course in painting (held in Swedish).

Teacher for the course called Performance (click on the link to get to the course page in the online programme- and course catalogue at Umeå University's website) will be Reto Pulfer
