Study visual arts

The visual arts industry includes a range of creative areas including ceramics, digital design, jewellery design, painting, photography, printing, sculpting, and textiles. Our visual arts courses will allow you to develop your own artistic voice and enhance your command of creative techniques in a range of art forms. We focus on pairing natural talents and vision with commercial thinking, practical concepts, and new technologies so you graduate with business know-how as well as technical skills.

We have an extensive suite of visual arts facilities including ceramics workshops and kilns, printmaking equipment, drawing and photography studios, AV equipment, and hardware and digital labs that include 3D printing and motion-capture facilities. With electives in painting, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, digital media technology, photo-media, ceramics, millinery, and fashion accessories, our visual arts courses can prepare you for whatever area of the visual arts industry you're interested in.

TAFE Queensland's partnerships with leading universities mean you will be credited for your time with us if you decide to upgrade your qualification. Successful completion of our Diploma of Visual Arts means you automatically qualify for a provisional place in the Bachelor of Visual Arts offered in partnership with the University of Canberra, and will receive up to one year of credit towards your degree.
