Creating striking artwork is as much about understanding the world as it is the canvas.
Art can inspire and challenge us, provide meaning and open our minds. In our visual arts program and courses, you’ll learn the skills to create art that translates what you see in your mind to something others can explore or be challenged by.
Take your unique talent and enhance it with practice-based fine arts studies across a range of mediums: painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, video and digital imaging, as well as new media.
Our visual arts courses also teach you the business skills you need to build a career in this exciting and challenging field. Whichever medium best expresses your creative self, we’ll give you the head start you need.
