Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution

With the Bachelor of Fine Arts, you'll develop the skills and knowledge needed to become a professional artist. In line with contemporary practice you may choose to work in an interdisciplinary mode, possibly including performance, installation, video and new media. During the first year, you are introduced to a range of activities to broaden your skills and experience. You will undertake subjects in both two-dimensional and multi-dimensional studios, as well as drawing, digital art and the history and theory of art and design. Learning may take place in a studio or workshop, lecture, tutorial, library, gallery or another learning setting, on or off-campus. Your second year involves further in-depth studies. In the studio art practice subjects, you will gain further experience in a range of media although with an increased emphasis on self-initiating projects, particularly in semester two. In the final year of your degree, you will propose a self-directed project incorporating research and contemporary art practice, supported by staff from a number of specialist studios. You will be working in, or across, the different studios as the individual projects demand. You will also undertake a subject in professional art practice. Our open, flexible, specialist studios include ceramics / 3D, drawing, printmaking, and painting. All teaching staff are practicing artists and designers with considerable reputations in Australia.
