  • since 1963

    The milieu of Stellenbosch offers a unique perspective to visual arts students: the intimate and supportive environment of a historical university town that is offset by the international, cosmopolitan and culturally diverse environment of central Cape Town, only 45 minutes drive away. The Department of Visual Arts occupies a historic, fully renovated building in oak-lined Victoria Street. We offer custom-designed studio and workshop spaces for our undergraduate study streams in Fine Arts, Visual Communication Design and Jewellery Design, including an industry-standard new media computer lab. In keeping with developments in contemporary art and design, the department’s ethos is multidisciplinary, supporting students working in all aspects of new media, including video and digital arts, as well as offering a solid foundation in traditional visual and applied arts practices.

    In addition to the expertise provided by full-time staff members, students are continually exposed to industry professionals, either through visiting artists and specialists in the department, or field trips to major exhibitions, events or industry fairs.

    Through all study streams, emphasis is placed on the production and critical evaluation of visual culture, rooted in addressing and reflecting all aspects of contemporary South African culture. The department also offers postgraduate study in Visual Arts, Illustration, Visual Studies and Art Education. Please contact Yumna Williams at +27 (0)21 808 3052 or [email protected] for more information in this regard.

    A BA in Visual Arts provides the core technical and conceptual skills for careers as artists, designers, art educators and teachers, curators, art critics or historians. These skills are also much sought after in the broader creative industries, including film production, arts administration, museum and heritage work, publishing and journalism, architecture and interior design consulting, design and advertising industries, jewellery manufacture, and so on.

    The popular preconception that a BA degree in Visual Arts is not career-focused is dismissed by the successes of graduates from this school who have demonstrated that they offer a highly attractive skills-set to potential employers. A BA in Visual Arts graduate is also by nature innovative and flexible, and thus very well suited to entrepreneurial work.

  • The Department of Visual Arts at Stellenbosch University offers a four-year BA degree in Fine Arts.

    Art is a demanding and competitive career choice. It is a vocation: not simply a job. It is true that the art industry is a complex, competitive and demanding environment. When we refer to the ‘art world’, we are actually suggesting something of its special conditions, with it being a unique economy in which ideas about culture, language, taste, style, entrepreneurship, knowledge and value are constantly put to the test. A wide range of skills is therefore required to keep things on track. A degree in art is a degree in the kind of creative thinking that the new knowledge economy seeks out. So it’s less a question of getting a ‘real’ job, than having the imagination and skills to invent the job you wish to have.

    Kuns is ’n veeleisende en mededingende

    loopbaankeuse. Wanneer ons van die “kunswêreld” praat,

    suggereer dit inderdaad iets omtrent die spesiale omstandighede van dié

    wêreld, ’n eiesoortige ekonomie waarin idees oor kultuur, taal, smaak, styl, entrepreneurskap,

    kennis en waarde voortdurend getoets word. ’n Wye verskeidenheid van

    vaardighede is daarom nodig om sake op

    dreef te hou.

    The methodology of the programme prioritises self-directed, self-conscious practice. It is based on developing critical thinking and problem-solving abilities through creative work, within which parameters students are free to explore the most appropriate ways of realising ideas.

    You will continue to discover and refine the content of your work through process, experimentation and being open to facing challenges. You have to be prepared to move outside of your comfort zone and to try out skills and ideas that you have maybe not yet considered.

    Contact time with lecturing staff and tutors varies according to year of study. Second year students receive more structured attention than fourth year students, who are more experienced and who are therefore expected to work independently. On average, lecturers will spend 9 – 12 hours per week on undergraduate teaching, depending on the year of study. Being prepared is therefore critical, as time must be used effectively.

    Die metodologie van die program verleen voorrang aan ’n selfgerigte, selfbewuste praktyk. Dit berus op die ontwikkeling van ’n vermoë om krities te dink en probleme op te los, wat deur skeppende werk geskied waarbinne studente vry is om die mees gepaste wyses te verken waarop idees verwerklik kan word.

    Deur proses, eksperimentering en oop te wees vir uitdagings, sal jy die inhoud van jou werk voortdurend ontdek en verfyn. Jy moet bereid wees om uit jou gemaksone te beweeg en vaardighede en idees te beproef wat jy miskien nog nie oorweeg het nie.
