The Certificate III in Visual Arts is a great place to begin your training as a visual artist. This qualification reflects the role of individuals who are developing a range of visual art skills. Foundation skills in painting, drawing, printmaking, silver-smithing, creative process and basic design are offered in this course. Creative practice at this level is underpinned by the application of introductory art theory and history.

To achieve the Studio Area specialisation, students can choose two Studio Area’s from Printmaking, Painting or Jewellery. Silversmithing specialisation The silversmithing specialisation has been designed for students who would like to specialise in units mainly related to silversmithing.
