Universidad De Vigo, Facultad De Bellas Artes De Pontevedra

The Faculty of Fine Arts of Pontevedra was created in 1990 to meet the need in Galicia for an advanced centre of formation in Art. Its early days were marked by uncertainty in terms of space and materials but not for the enthusiasm nor passion for human enrichment that our staff and teachers employed.

The change of loction in 1994 to an emblematic building in a central part of the city was a sign of agreement and understanding between the city of Pontevedra and the Fine Arts department, which over recent years has become characteristic of the city.

Our Aims

Since its beginning the Faculty of Fine Arts has aimed to exceed expectations as an advanced centre for arts, giving students a quality education not only in artistic knowledge but also in their evolution as conscientious people, great creators with the ability to criticise and self-criticise, the value to not limit themselves and to constantly question the who, how and why of their work.

In this way the Faculty of Fine Arts of Pontevedra aims to be a point of reference for artists at the forefront of contemporary art and aesthetic thought.
