Want to study a progressive, contemporary fine arts course that’s run by qualified teachers and practising artists? Then our Diploma of Visual Arts is for you.

Now, more than ever, we need to provoke important conversations. Use your art to give voice to the people and issues that matter to you.

Roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty on a range of tools and equipment as you paint, sculpt and draw your way through this studio-led course. Make the most of our new, purpose-built creative workshop. Discover new techniques to make your art ‘work’. Take photos, make prints, videos , drawings and digital images – and then exhibit them in our exhibition space. Learn by working directly with practising artists through workshops and mentoring sessions.

Use critical thinking to explore and develop solutions for real-world problems and multidisciplinary projects. You could find yourself working with local council on arts festivals, or teaming up with established retailers to make live art works.

Hone the soft skills – like critical thinking, collaboration, creative problem solving, and strong communication – that’ll set you up for a range of work environments. Graduate ready to work in your own practice, or in a wide range of contexts across the arts, government, community or commercial organisations.
