The Visual Art minor 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 minor will allow students to conceive, produce and critique artworks incorporating methodologies of painting and drawing. 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 minor students will engage with arts professionals and the visual arts community, visit exhibitions and write reviews.
