IED Madrid Diploma in Fine Arts turns the student into an interdisciplinary artist able to evolve together with the changes in fine arts.
Fine Arts students at IED Madrid continuously question everything that surrounds them, exploring and calling into question the established perspectives. The programme covers from traditional disciplines up to new forms of art, providing a more extensive vision of the different techniques of artistic expression.
The curriculum is developed to promote diversity and wide-ranging research in contemporary art, always in connection with discipline such as Science, the Humanities and Technology. Through the knowledge of techniques, methodologies and materials, students will develop capacities that will turn them into transdisciplinary artists with highly developed research capacity, exploration skills and critical thinking.
Students will develop their own language, the voice of an author, a personal vision following a methodology that links creating to thinking. For this purpose, the programme links the past with the present and future of Fine Arts and creativity with the professional world.
