Bachelor of Fine Arts (Sculpture or Painting)

Enrolment Requirements:

  • Minimum level high school diploma (or above)

  • Minimum level of English competence of B1 certified by an official institution (CEFR). In the absence of this, an interview will be required.

  • Portfolio (recommended):


While a strong portfolio is not a requirement of application, this is taken into account when places are limited

A portfolio that TIAC Academy would consider strong:

  • Primarily would indicate an aptitude for drawing : a sense of three dimensionality, the capacity for accuracy and some understanding of modelling form

  • Images that indicate the desire to carefully craft a composition

  • An understanding of colour in design and in terms of light

  • The capacity to model a proportional head or figure would be taken as an indication of aptitude for working in three dimensions.
