The tradition of art education at Brno University of Technology dates back to 1899 when the Institute of Drawing was established at the Faculty of Construction of the University. In the 1930s is changed to the Drawing at Modelling Institute. The post-war period meant a new tradition. In the 1940s, Vincenc Makovský, the well-known Czech sculptor, became a regular university professor and built up an institute that is the Faculty of Fine Arts.
