About us

Who we are

Kunstacademie Friesland is a private training institute for all disciplines in the visual arts: drawing, painting, photography and video , theory, projects, mixed media, art projects and art tours. With a modular part-time vocational training course and a wide range of short courses during the weekend or in the evening.

 The main objective of the vocational training is to train students to become visual artists. All activities (courses / workshops / vocational training) can be found on the site. The offer and program will be published on this website and via brochures well in advance of the start.

On this site you will find information about our offerings and also information about courses/workshops that have already been taken (and for which you can no longer register). Of course you can always call us if you have any questions or about the upcoming season.

All modules of the part-time vocational training are open for registration. If you want to follow the entire professional training program and complete it with a diploma, an admission is required. The modules cover a wide area: drawing, painting, printing techniques, mixed media, sculpture, land art, photography, video, 3D design, art appreciation, art philosophy, etc. (For the modules in the part-time vocational training, a minimum age of 18 applies, the preliminary training is accessible from the age of 17.)

The Team

Tea Sieta Greidanus

Head of administration “From the It Frysk Skildershûs course institute I was able to help realize the certification of the Art Academy from the administration. Together with Feikje I form the administration. As a team, we speak to teachers and students and we solve questions. It makes me happy that all those participants come to make their artworks here”.

Feikje Postmus

Administration “Together with Tea Sieta I make sure that the administration is accessible. I really enjoy talking to teachers and students by telephone, email or verbally. It is fun and varied work to be in contact with all those different people”.
