about us

The Academy of Visual Arts, Ljubljana (AVA) offers advanced courses in contemporary visual arts. It is a school that encourages its students to develop into confident, creative, and independent professional artists.

AVA’s mission is to establish a strong, successful and recognisable institutional identity with a discernible contribution to the communities that we serve. It is an identity based on promoting individual visions and creative excellence. The strategy of learning and teaching provides sound foundations for practical creative procedures and for the history and theory of visual arts that prepare students for their creative professional careers in the fields of fine art, theatre, film, video and photography, or for continuing their studies at postgraduate level. This strategy emphasises experimentation, research, problem solving and interdisciplinary collaboration based on global information and awareness.
