Minor available at
Blacktown- Not on offer (2023)
The Visual Arts minor provides a mix of studio-based fine art and art and design history and theory electives. Emphasis is placed on students experiencing a range of professional practice opportunities such as entering their work in art competitions, writing publish-ready interviews, articles and art reviews and presenting their artwork in group exhibitions in the ACU gallery. Students are trained by staff who are active practitioners in their field and benefit from small class sizes in an intimate studio environment. Students on an education pathway choose units in the visual arts major that will prepare them for primary and secondary level teaching. The art history and theory units have resulted in career outcomes 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 off their peers' work in artist-run spaces.
