Individual artistic work
As a student at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts you work to a great
extent (about 60 %) of the time with your individual artistic
project as part of your main course. The rest of the time there are
other mandatory courses, workshops, lectures and other scheduled
activites. Each term you have a tutor who is your teacher/professor
responsible for your main course. He or she usually offers
individual tutorials as part of his or her teaching. Guests who we
invite for lectures/workshops also commonly offer tutorials/studio
visits open to all students or to a certain year
In your 2nd and final year you commonly have solo or group
exhibitions during the atumn term and in the spring term you have
your graduate exhibition at Bildmuseet.
