Adelaide College of the Arts is a $60M dynamic and purpose-built space in the heart of the CBD housing a first-class gallery, custom-built workshops, modern studios and light filled atriums.
Our visual arts program provides an inspirational environment where art, design and media interact and are redefined in productive dialogue.
In a supportive studio-based environment our students have a choice of specialisations including ceramics, digital media, drawing, jewellery, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture.
Students will explore traditional and contemporary arts practices in installation, moving image and sound, coupled with business and entrepreneurial skills to build a career in the arts.
The Bachelor of Creative Arts (Visual Arts) is a unique degree delivered in conjunction with Flinders University and students undertake the Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts concurrently with their degree.
Graduates are employed across many occupational sectors, with many operating as self-employed practising artists. Artists are employed in galleries, studios, or work with festivals, schools and education providers, or within the tourism and retail sectors.
Arts administration and arts management provide job opportunities for people to work in art-based or community-based organisations where the creative arts are a focus.
Many graduates undertake further study in visual arts at Honours or Masters level, while a visual arts qualification with a degree in education provides an avenue into teaching.
Bachelor of Creative Arts (Visual Arts) is a unique degree offered in
partnership with Flinders University and Adelaide College of the Arts.
It blends the best of the vocational training sector with higher
education. In three years of full time study students will achieve three
qualifications; a Diploma of Visual Arts, an Advanced Diploma of Visual
Arts and the Bachelor of Creative Arts (Visual Arts). Since 2001 we
have delivered a highly regarded Bachelor of Visual Arts since. This new
partnership signifies our intent to deliver a dynamic and nationally
competitive degree in South Australia, home of the arts and culture.
partnership aims to graduate the modern arts practitioner, someone
historically knowledgeable and theoretically aware, equipped to deal
with all the demands of contemporary cultural production.
