Where will graduate study at the VCA lead me?

Graduate study at the VCA can open up doors and help you find and develop your own artistic voice. Our boutique programs provide the breathing room, the support, networks and industry links for you to explore your own ideas, be inspired, and develop your creative career. Check out where some of our graduates find themselves a few years on from graduation, such as practicing visual artist Fred Fowler, who was recently commissioned by fashion label Gorman to produce a series of artwork for their Fred Fowler X Gorman collection.
