Escuela De Arte Fernando Estevez

Very few teaching institutions in the Canary Islands can boast a centenary of history. The Escuela de Arte Fernando Estevez is one of them.

The school has passed through many different stages since the creation, in 1849, of the Fine Arts Academy in Tenerife which disappeared 20 years later due to economic circumstances. It was the subsequent creation, in 1880, of the Municipal Drawing School that established the foundation for the present-day art school.

In 1963 the official study plan for applied arts and artistic trades was introduced and in 1991 this was updated to LOGSE standards (General Organic Law of the Educational System. Decree 1/1990 of 3 Oct).

Throughout its history the emphasis has been on the human component during the students' artistic-professional development, a fact that overrides all physical, technological, bureaucratic and even prestige factors.

Our Aims

Through its present teaching programme the Escuela de Arte Fernando Estevez aims to prepare students as competent professionals and for entry into the workplace without abandoning their creative and artistic capacities.

This is achieved through a thorough teaching programme in the school which is regularly updated, and through work experience in which students are able to directly view the world that they will later enter and helping them to adapt to changing situations.
