Looking to embed industry and business skills in your creative career?

This nationally recognised qualification is for all artists wishing to further their practice and embed their career into the arts industry across multi disciplines such as visual artists, illustrators, designers, gaming artists, makeup artists, animators and photographers. You will develop the resources, networks and knowledge to launch your creative products into the market in the form of a portfolio, published work or an exhibition.

Expand your conceptual, creative, entrepreneurial, marketing skills. You will also learn a range of skills needed to market, manage and promote your work. Practical and business subjects and workshops will run throughout the course to support creative practice guided by professional teachers and established artists.

Our experienced and passionate teachers are closely connected to the arts industry, encouraging both traditional and contemporary practice, supporting your own individual creative practice and providing a wealth of specialist skills and knowledge. They will support you to enhance your skills and gain confidence in promoting, communicating and showcasing your art work.

Students will have the opportunity to exhibit work in commercial gallery spaces throughout the course. This course can be delivered via video conferencing for students with established studios or remotely located.

Chisholm Institute’s focus is on quality facilities and links to industry partners to provide stimulating connections and strong technical and creative expertise in the art industries. This program is supported by the visiting artists program, industry competitions, workshops, excursions and public exhibitions.
