      Overview

      Course Description

      The Graduate Certificate in Visual Art is designed for students who have completed a degree and wish to further develop interests and skills in the visual arts. It also serves as a refresher course for some professionals (e.g. teachers) and may improve the competitiveness of those seeking entry to the Master of Contemporary Art.

      The course provides practical and theoretical coursework elements through studio workshops and studies in art history and theory. Each week during the semester you work in three-hour studio workshops where you can choose to work in painting, drawing, digital technologies, printmaking, sculpture, installation, performance or photography, and/or a combination of the above. Throughout the year you develop set projects with the assistance of your tutors and present them in formal group discussion and critical reflection.

      The Graduate Certificate in Visual Art provides eligibility for entry into the Master of Contemporary Art. The Master of Contemporary Art is a two year coursework degree, with an exit point of a Postgraduate Diploma in Contemporary Art on completion of the first 100 points of study.
