Space for research and design thinking, for experimentation and gaining knowledge. For future designers, visual artists, typographers, illustrators and art educators specializing in graphic design. 
Interdisciplinary learning and networked thinking, trying things out, experimenting, remaining critical and developing innovatively. Questioning your own work and sparking enthusiasm in exchange with other creatives. The class teaches core competencies, craftsmanship, essential skills and a digital understanding of design. The focus is always on people and their needs. 

Iconic turn and immersion. With curiosity and excitement, together we master the challenges of today and tomorrow, digital art, coding and AI, but also analog and haptic products and objects. The aim of the course is to develop an independent artistic and creative attitude in the field of graphic design. The course serves both to acquire the necessary technical and theoretical skills and to develop conceptual skills to enable professional work in the field.

Artistic Classes

first cycle and postgraduate programmes

Studies at AdBK Nuremberg are organized in a class structure that unites all students regardless of the semesters they have already completed. The permeable class structures allow students to develop freely and independently within the framework of the academic teaching. In open discourse, the students' created works are reviewed and discussed at regular class meetings.


In the field of fine arts with a focus on liberal arts, the disciplines at the AdBK Nuremberg are divided into ten artistic classes, which are led by a professor.

The study of fine arts with a focus on jewelry and device or graphic design / communication design can each be completed in one class. The teacher training program in art at the Gymnasium can be completed in all free classes.


With postgraduate master's program „Live Art Forms“ the AdBK offers further education, which is aimed at interested parties who have already completed their studies.
