Visual Arts

A meaningful visual begins with an eye for the world around us.

We believe visual arts provide meaning to what seems meaningless, especially within the commercial noise that surrounds us. That’s why we offer visual arts courses at Swinburne.

Visual arts courses are an opportunity to explore your unique talents and enhance your artistic skills through practice-based learning that will set you up for a successful career in the fine arts industry.

We provide an understanding of the theory and practices for you to broaden your knowledge in a range of art methods. This includes painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, video and digital imaging, often incorporating other media and new technologies. Whatever the direction you choose, you’ll have the hands-on skills and applicable business sense that you need for the career you want.

Future careers can be found in visual arts industries.

SWINBURNE AND IMMERSE ART FESTIVAL TAKE OVER THE EAST

Swinburne is teaming up with Knox City Council for Immerse 2017, an arts festival that will take over Melbourne’s east. The feature artwork is ‘Untitled House’, a project led by Swinburne’s Roh Singh, a public artist and visual arts educator.

“The elements contained in the artwork talk to the central theme and current debates of home affordability and ownership and the slipping of the commonly described ‘Australian Dream’,” says Mr Singh.
