VCA ART 2020

Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting)

Painting is taught in an immersive, studio-based environment. Reflecting the diversity of contemporary art practice, it supports independent and conceptually innovative practice. By developing technical and conceptual methodologies students gain a sound knowledge of traditional and contemporary painting skills, techniques and concepts.

With the practice of critical analysis, students become more confident in the expression of their own visual ideas and observations. Students learn about the historical, contemporary and theoretical context in which they work.

We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
