Career and Industry

As students progress through the program they also may learn how to create something visually from an imagined world, or one that takes a symbolic form or representation.
Visual Arts at Deakin University explores representations of the figure and settings by observation of their nature and as students progress through different levels of the course they become acquainted with the ideas of abstraction, pluralist strategies and conceptual development.
