Amsterdam Direct Enrollment - Gerrit Rietveld Academie

Program Overview

Gerrit Rietveld Academie

The Gerrit Rietveld Academie is a progressive, innovative art and design school that values the productive interplay between theory and practice, between research and experimentation. With a philosophy that stresses independence and creativity through a highly-individualized curriculum, the GRA wants you to be self reliant and highly motivated--qualities you'll need to be a successful professional artist. Within the GRA's unstructured group studio environment, you are not given assignments or syllabi, but receive individual coaching from Academie tutors.

The GRA's population is diverse, with more than 50 nationalities represented in its student body. Most of the Academie's 200 tutors are independent artists or designers who bring real-world, professional experience to the classroom.
