If your artistic spirit is crying out to be unleashed, come to CIT and learn how to turn your passion into your life’s work! The Certificate IV course will enable you to unleash your imagination and produce work that shows proficiency with techniques in your chosen art form and applying creative solutions to a defined range of unpredictable problems. You will gain a broad and integrated factual, technical and theoretical knowledge with cognitive skills that allow you to analyse, compare and act on information from a range of sources.
As you advance to diploma-level studies, you will combine specialised technical, creative and conceptual skills to prepare for and develop an emerging arts practice. You will gain the skills and knowledge to be able to plan and realise a body of work in one or more art forms, reinforced with a sound grasp of art theory and history and the ability to critically analyse and synthesise information from a range of sources.
Visual artists work in a wide range of contexts across the arts and other industries, working as sole practitioners, or holding positions in government or commercial organisations.
