MABUVI  Visual Arts Major  

This unit set is available in the following courses:

The 240 credit point Visual Arts major (formerly known as Visual Arts Immersion) is a practice-based Visual Arts program offering focused investigation across a range of two and three-dimensional studios including drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. Through critical theory and potential cross-experimentation with existing studios within the school such as: glass, design, fashion, writing, film and video, animation and photography, students are immersed within visual culture to develop hybrid and traditional approaches to their creative praxis. The degree is complemented by a rigorous conceptual focus to enable the student to develop their professional studio practice through a contemporary and historic lens. Students develop the confidence to exhibit publicly and to identify career opportunities in teaching, curating, independent studio practice, and with private and public arts agencies and institutions. The major culminates in a significant public exhibition, which further enhances the emphasis placed on professional practice.
