The perfect stepping stone into one of our degree programs, this course delves deeper into the principles of good design and drawing. 

The Certificate IV in Visual Arts is a practical, studio-based qualification which provides students with an understanding and broad knowledge in a range of art methods. The program is designed to support folio creation and offer an introduction to the arts industry. Areas of study include drawing, painting, sculpture, art history and theory, art and professional practice

The program aims to support students in the development of their artistic voice, create a folio, learn about the visual arts industry and develop skills to become a visual art practitioner. Upon completion of this program, students will produce a portfolio of artwork for use in further art training and/or to seek work in the visual arts industry.
