National ID: CUA51115 | State ID: AZL3

 

Take your art to a high level. This course will develop your skills and knowledge in selected areas of visual art and craft, with options to focus on painting, print media, ceramics, sculpture and digital art.

This diploma will enable you to take on complicated art projects with a developed skillset and knowledge of various materials and mediums.

You'll have the opportunity to focus on areas such as painting, print media, ceramics, sculpture and digital media and refine these skills in studio classes designed to bring your ideas to reality.

Our art and craft facilities are purpose built to a high standard of equipment and facilities. Students also benefit from the close proximity to the Perth Cultural Centre which is home to the Art Gallery of WA, PICA and many other smaller galleries.

A successful career in visual arts will require you to promote yourself and look outside the square when it comes to gaining employment. You can work on small or large scale public art projects or work as a freelance artist. You can also combine your studies with other courses and become a teacher or work in arts administration.

Your Diploma of Visual Arts and Craft prepares you for roles such as a designer-maker or an artist.

Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.

International Students

If this course is available for International students you will need to pay your course fees to TIWA when you accept your offer.
