The Academy of Fine Art in Education aims at a better cooperation in the field of current art education in the Amsterdam region. This cooperation takes place in a practically oriented, innovative study environment, a meeting point for reflection, debate and the enrichment of knowledge.

By means of hands-on training and projects, debates and presentations, research and the exchange of information, the Academie voor Beeldende Vorming creates an interaction between students and tutors of art and teacher training courses, artists and professionals from the disciplinary field. In doing so it also responds to the specific issues relating to projects, education and research of the other faculties of the Amsterdam University of the Arts and of schools and cultural institutions in the immediate surroundings.
