The Athens School of Fine Arts (ASFA) is one of the oldest academic institutions of modern Greece (1843) and one of the most important Higher Education Institutions for Visual Arts and Art Theory and History in Greece. ASFA keeps up with recent advances by constantly incorporating contemporary educational practices and by developing various cultural activities in ASFA’s premises which are open to the public, such as the “N. Kessanlis” exhibition hall (4000 m²), and a Library specialized in Arts, Theatre and Cinema. ASFA, also, has Annexes throughout Greece, where international workshops and artistic projects are organized (e.g. in Delphi, in Mithymna (Lesvos), in Mykonos, in Rethymno (Crete), in Monodendri (Ioannina), in Rhodes and in Hydra). ASFA consists of two departments, the Department of Fine Arts and the Department of Theory and History of Art.
The educational program covers doctoral studies and provides the following Master Degrees: «Theory and History of Arts», «Fine Arts», «Digital Arts», as well as one Greek-French Master Degree with title «Art, Virtual Reality and Multiuser Systems of Artistic Expression» in collaboration with Paris-8 University.
ASFA is developing extended collaborations both in Greece and abroad, in educational, artistic and research fields.
