The Athens School of Fine Arts
The history of the Athens School of Fine Arts coincides the history of the Modern Greek state. The “School of Arts” was founded by Royal Decree in December 1836, modelled on similar institutions in Western Europe, and especially Germany (Bavaria) and France.
In July 1930, the School became an autonomous Higher Education institution, with “the practical and theoretical education of artists in the visual arts” as its main objective.
Since 1944, many important artists, such as Thomopoulos, Parthenis, Moralis, Mavroidis, Grammatopoulos, Papaloukas, Pappas, Kalamaras, Apartis, Tetsis, Kokkinidis, Kessanlis, Mytaras, Nikolaidis, Dekoulakos, Exarchopoulos, and architect Mylonas, art historian Marina Lambraki-Plaka and architect Savvas Kontaratos, have taught at the School, ensuring that the prevailing trends in contemporary art are represented both in the studio and the lecture theatre.
The building at 42 Patission Street, which is part of the National Technical University of Athens, houses the Master’s Degree in Fine Arts, the Dean’s Office, the ASFA Press, and the School’s administrative services.
The six ASFA Annexes in Delphi, Mithymna (Lesvos), Mykonos, Rethymno, Rhodes and Hydra, where students gain practical experience, are an integral part of the learning process.
