This studio based course is designed to develop students' individual practice. While primarily intended for students who have completed our Foundation (FYVA) course, consideration will be given for those who have studied visual arts elsewhere. Students are guided by our experienced team to develop critical thinking and their own visual language through research methods as well as further technical information. Course activities include studio work, field trips, gallery visits, guest lecturers, group exhibitions and more. 

Eligibility: Students who have completed the Foundation year are eligible for the Visual Arts Practice course.

Note: Students who complete the Visual Arts Practice year are then eligible for the Visual Arts Research & Portfolio course.

Total Cost for the year is $4290 (Incl. GST). If students pay before 3rd February 2017 the cost is discounted to $4070 (Incl. GST). 

To secure a place in the course, students must sign up for the whole year*. All payments (whether semester or full year) are due by the 3rd February 2017.  

*If due to any unforeseen circumstances the course does not run, all monies will be refunded.
