Universidad De La Laguna, Facultad De Bellas Artes
Although its roots go back to the 18th century, Fine Arts studies in Tenerife, with academic validity as a school of Advanced Level art studies, began to be given in 1947.
Following the schoolâ€™s incorporation into the University of La Laguna as a Faculty in 1978, the school began a renovation and modernization of its educational and technical system. Since then the Faculty of Fine Arts has focused its teaching on classic visual arts subjects such as Drawing, Painting, Sculpture and Engraving as well as Image and Design and Restoration techniques. These subjects are complemented by theoretical studies that explain the complexity of the artistic process and its multiple links to present-day society.
At the moment the Faculty has around 600 students and 61 professors, participates in the programme for European Convergence and is working on curriculum for post-graduate studies. A new building is also being constructed in the University Campus of Guajara which will make the Faculty one of the most modern in Europe.
