text: The Athens School of Fine Arts has evolved from a small nucleus established in 1837 known either as the Polytechnic or the School for the Arts. In 1843 the School for the Arts was organised into three divisions under a single director:
First: a part-time school providing supplementary education to craftsmen
Second: a full-time school for young people intending to work as industrial craftsmen
Third: a full-time higher educational school for teaching the fine arts.
The third division of the school, which taught subjects such as painting, sculpture, architecture, lithography, woodcutting, geometry, and cartography, was called The School of Fine Art and was the real ancestor of today’s Athens School of Fine Arts. It was the predominant branch of the School for the Arts from 1844 until 1862.
The school’s second division, called the School of Industrial Arts, developed into the Technical University, which, since 1863, has become a very important factor in Greece’s industrial development.
In 1910 the School of Fine Art was separated from the Technical University and provided with its own director. Finally, in 1930, the school was renamed the Athens School of Fine Arts and established as an independent institution.
