Faculty of Fine Arts

This is the place for those who want to deal with contemporary self-expression and reflection on society and oneself – in other words, to deal with art in a direct and most serious sense of the word; with animation as story-telling and scenography as narrative, both on stage and in film. And currently the most popular and diverse discipline – photography.

Studies at BA level are based on a curriculum which enables the student to acquire skills and knowledge in three traditional disciplines (painting, sculpture and installation and graphic art), spiced with contemporary approach as well as classical knowledge.

At the MA level, the curriculum enables the students to explore the entire range of contemporary art (new media, photography, painting, graphic art, sculpture and installation, etc.) under the supervision of Estonia’s best contemporary artists and take part in joint projects which continue throughout the year and often develop into exhibition works.

At the MA level for animation, students work on lengthy animation projects in an appropriate international context; in the Scenography Department activities related to the MA curriculum are conducted in close cooperation with the Baltic Film and Media School, the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, and many distinguished theatres.
