Take your inner artist to the next level

Our Certificate IV in Visual Arts is the first step to expand our student’s understanding of all practical and theoretical areas in arts practice.

The course is designed to lead into the Fine Arts and Illustration and extends the student's awareness of self-expression and creativity, through drawing, painting, sculpture print making, digital art, exhibition planning, creative thinking and building a business in the creative industries.

Our experienced staff are practicing artists and experts in their teaching areas, are committed to their students and passionate about the quality of their learning experience.

We offer a regular visiting artist program includes industry experts in a variety of genres and introduces students to industry practice, new creative processes and networking opportunities.

Students will receive a broad experience in art within the classroom and workshops to facilitate personal understanding of their own future direction in the creative industries. They will participate in and experience a range of exhibitions held in professional gallery spaces.

Chisholm art facilities include excellent industry standard printmaking and sculpture studios.

Full time 2-3 days per week
