It’s one thing to work on your art in a home studio – quite another to make a viable career out of your visual art qualifications. That’s where Swinburne’s Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts (Art Management) can assist.

When you’re serious about a vocation in the arts, valid credentials can take you a long way. With a strong emphasis on forging vocational opportunities in arts administration, arts organisations and related industries, this course prepares you for the exciting, creative world you’re about to enter.

Your existing technical, creative and conceptual skills will flourish further under the expert eye of our educators in a studio environment that mirrors professional spaces. Drawing, ceramics, digital art, glasswork, jewellery, textiles – these are just a few of the mediums available to specialise in and enhance your portfolio.

Art theory and history, and the ability to conduct critical conversations about your own work and the work of others, help strike a healthy balance between left and right brain.

Swinburne also boasts multiple local council and industry connections who will provide you with real-world arts industry projects – as well as networking opportunities.

Whether your future lies in government, commercial, private or community arts-based contexts, in roles such as curator, arts officer, gallery coordinator, artist assistant, gallery technician or arts administrator, this advanced diploma will provide all the vocational assistance you could hope for.
