The Visual Art major provides students with an integrated set of units that will develop student individual art making practices and broaden student experience and understanding of fine art history and theory. Undertaking this major will allow you to conceive, produce and critique artworks incorporating methodologies of painting, drawing, installation, digital art and photography. Through theoretical content, discourse and research of significant artists, students will make rigorous critical analytical and interpretative thinking about art and develop the capacity to apply creative thinking and innovation broadly. During the major you will engage with arts professionals and the visual arts community, visit exhibitions and write reviews. The major includes capstone units that provide students the opportunity to draw on their learning in the major, and develop the capacity to apply learning in a variety of contexts.
