Research and play. Order and disorder. Come and go again. See, perceive, observe, see yourself. Compare apples to pears. Appreciate art. Reflect and put into context.

The course is open to all artistic techniques, media and approaches. The focus is on the students' work both through group discussion and personal guidance. Talking and formulating is part of the clarification process in the students' work. Group discussion of work is intended to prompt feedback and suggestion, reveal possibilities and associations in contemporary art and art history.

Art studies are the same for both art education and fine art students. It is an experiential process for everyone, offering ample freedom to experiment, explore materials, techniques, visual ideas and, above all, explore our own personality.

"Man only plays when he is in the fullest sense of the word a human being and he is only fully a human being when he plays" (Friedrich Schiller).

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.
