Department's Welcome
 
The major in Fine Arts is dedicated to fostering creative and critical inquiry and inspiring artistic expression. This is achieved through instruction in various studio art disciplines with the innovative application of both practical and theoretical knowledge. The program imparts rigorous skill-based training in drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and video, which ultimately allows for the creative and conceptual mixing of genres in the final year. The studio courses are supplemented with a structured track of history and theory courses: tools that have become increasingly crucial for the practicing artist in the 21st century. Each year, students will also have opportunities to interact with artists and leaders in the various creative industries across the UAE. The goal is to produce knowledgeable and globally aware artists with a trans-disciplinary and multi-genre skill set, which will prepare them for a successful career in the dynamic world of contemporary art.
