Take your inner artist to the next level

Our Certificate IV in Visual Arts allows you to expand your creative practical and theoretical skills in Visual Arts practice. You will develop and extend your skills and knowledge across a range of 2D art forms and develop skills and confidence in using a range of techniques.

Explore self-expression and creativity through drawing, illustration, design painting, sculpture print making, digital art, exhibition planning, creative thinking and building a practice in the creative industries. This broad range of media and processes will help you find your artistic strengths.

The course includes broad and foundational experience in visual arts within the classroom to support your own personal understanding of your future direction in the creative industries. Some history and theory units will be delivered online, in real time, to allow you some days to continue your learning from home. You will participate in exhibitions held in professional gallery spaces, and experience excursions and artist talks.

Chisholm art facilities include expansive industry standard painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture studios. You’ll be taught by experienced, working artists with specialist knowledge. We maintain industry partnerships, including curators, gallery directors and arts business professionals, to prepare you for a career in the visual arts.
