What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Visual Arts will equip you with the necessary historical, theoretical and practical knowledge to begin a career in the visual arts. Working with accomplished artists, art historians and other industry leaders, you will learn how to navigate and succeed in the visual arts sector. This degree consists primarily of studio and art theory courses.

In the first year, you will undertake foundation courses in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, jewellery and small objects and indigenous art and protocols. In your second year, you will specialise in either painting, sculpture or photography, with electives in other disciplines at QCA and across Griffith University.

In your third year, you will continue your major, learn important professional practice skills and produce a major cross-disciplinary project and exhibition. Courses in art theory underpin all three years of the program and provide an important foundation for studio practice or further art historical and curatorial study.
