The visual arts major sequence provides a mix of art and design history and theory electives and studio-based fine art. You’ll experience a range of professional practice opportunities such as entering your work in art competitions, writing publish-ready interviews, articles and art reviews and presenting you artwork in group exhibitions in the ACU gallery. You will be trained by staff who are active practitioners in their field and benefit from small class sizes in an intimate studio environment. If you’re on an education pathway, you can combine a major in the visual arts with a teaching qualification to prepare you for secondary level visual arts teaching.
The art history and theory units have resulted in career outcomes such as freelance art reviewers, educational officers in galleries, and research assistant positions in academia.
The practical art units have resulted in students working toward solo exhibitions and curating group shows of their peers' work in artist-run spaces.
We're available 9am–5pm AEDT,
