About MFA AKV/St. Joost: The two-year master programme Fine Arts at AKV | St.Joost supports artists in their ambition to deepen and strengthen their practice. The programme provides students with an enhanced foundation for a lifelong career as an artist.The current art practice is diverse, requiring a variety of non-predetermined methods. The master programme is focused on researching the students’ own position, stressing its distinctive features, and researching the most suitable methodology. The training provides room for experimentation within their own work, but also teaches them to relate to a variety of positions, art forms, contexts and presentation forms belonging to issues a contemporary artist faces. Students share an open studio with their fellow students in which they can work together, discuss and exchange experiences with each other and fellow professional artists.
The master programme has a strong international orientation: students come from the Netherlands and abroad, and the programme has established collaborations with other master programs and art institutions abroad. The students are all professionals who want to expand their vision and artistic possibilities.
