The Gerrit Rietveld Academie (GRA) is a progressive, innovative art and design school that values the productive interplay between theory and practice, between research and experimentation. With a philosophy that stresses independence and creativity through a highly-individualized curriculum, the GRA wants you to be self-reliant and highly motivated—qualities you’ll need to be a successful professional artist. Within the GRA’s unstructured group studio environment, you are not given assignments or syllabi, but receive individual coaching from Academie tutors.
