Paint a bright future with TAFE
Our Visual Arts pathway provides you with an open and supportive studio environment for you to define and shape your career as a Visual Artist. It begins with hands-on traditional skills and techniques, and develops your understanding of contemporary culture, both historically and theoretically. It explores how contemporary arts interface with digital technologies and expands into cross media, multi-disciplinary visual arts practice. The course has an industry engagement/employment focus and explores different genres of arts practice, art communities, curating, design/commercial opportunities and contemporary visual identities. Our course programs are adapted to your personal strengths and aspirations allowing you to build your skills and understanding of contemporary art and culture, and to develop and maintain a strong practice in the Visual Arts sector.
Upon completion of these programs, you can become a practising artist in a wide range of art, design and culturally-related fields, including gallery exhibitions, arts education, arts administration, curating, exhibition and display design, public art, product design, illustration, and publications.
