Aesthetics with Specialisation Fine Art
We genuinely believe at IEGS that everyone has an innate creativity. If you choose to take the Aesthetics Programme with either Fine Art or Drama, you will be challenged both academically and creatively during your three years with us. You will soon discover that our teachers have the skill and patience to help you fulfill your unique creative potential. After completing the Aesthetics Programme at IEGS you will be able to study a variety of arts and humanities courses at university.
Located in the heart of Södermalm, IEGS is perfectly placed to study Fine Arts or Theatre, due to its close proximity to a range of high quality art galleries, museums and theaters.
Within the school there is a dedicated Art room, 3D workshop and MAC suite.
On the Fine Art specialisation, you will be encouraged to think about the significance of art and visual culture, both historically and within contemporary society. Your understanding will be developed within the local, regional and international context. You will also develop your ability to analyse, interpret and discuss a range of different types of artwork, make critical evaluations of these, based on a sound understanding of contemporary thinking in art history and analysis.
At IEGS, we believe that the ability to contextualise art is fundamental to understanding the creative process. Equally critically, at IEGS we firmly believe in the importance of ensuring that you develop the fundamentals associated with good artistic practice across a wide range of media:
- Throughout the programme a working understanding of perspective, composition and colour theory is developed parallel to basic practical skills across multiple genres and dimensions
- As your confidence and control develops, you will be encouraged to then explore your creativity, to be original and to hone your own personal style and expression

Beyond the Arts Programme
After completing the Aesthetics Programme at IEGS, as well as gaining an advanced range of highly specific skills in your focus area, you will also have developed a range of transferable skills including the ability to think laterally and solve problems in a creative way.
These kind of skills are natural to artists and designers and therefore makes you an attractive asset, particularly within the creative industries sector.
Employers in this sector rely on people who have the ability to think differently, formulate questions and solve problems. More specifically, you will be critically aware of self and external factors in a range of circumstances, possess the ability to be reflective, have developed good interpersonal skills, be resourceful and possess a greater appreciation of the benefits of diversity.
You will have developed excellent research skills and be able to show evidence of project planning and management through your artistic endeavours.
