Overview

Through the Visual Arts program you will gain a range of skills across the contemporary arts, from traditional media techniques in painting and drawing through to 3D modelling, and the investigation of the interplay between art and technology. You will develop skills in critical thinking, collaboration, technique, visual analysis and experimentation, which are crucial to work as an artist and also highly transferable. In creative studio units you will be encouraged to develop your own practice and research skills through studio seminars and independent studio practice. The sequence of units develops you professionally and opens up options for work in education, curation, arts administration, public art, graphic design, art therapy and for further postgraduate study.
