Visual Art is taught in an immersive, studio and workshop-based environment that offers artists the opportunity to develop their technical and conceptual skills across a wide range of methodologies.
Study Visual Art at the VCA
Independently led studio practice is a focus of Visual Art at the VCA. Artists are expected to develop studio projects that require investigation and experimentation with a range of concepts, materials, techniques and processes.
Critical and theoretical studies and professional arts practice skills subjects provide you with the skills to pursue the practice of a professional working artist, and allow you to critically engage in the debates of contemporary visual art.
Regular student exhibitions and the annual end-of-year exhibitions form an important part of the discipline’s curriculum and offer the opportunity to engage the wider public in your work.Find visual art courses
