Course Description

Marina Abramovic, James Turrell, Bruno Latour, Alfredo Jarr, Kirsha Kaechele and Patricia Piccinini. These are no ordinary artists, curators and theorists. But as a Bachelor of Fine Arts student, you can expect regular opportunities to engage and work with acclaimed international artists of this calibre commissioned by local institutions such as MONA, the Tasmanian Museum &amp, Art Gallery, QVMAG, Detached and Contemporary Art Tasmania.

  • Specialise in 3D Design, Ceramics, Drawing, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Textiles, Time Based Media, Visual Communication, or pursue a multi-disciplinary practice across studios.
  • Participate in iconic festivals such as Dark Mofo, Ten Days on the Island, and Junction Arts Festival. Engage with acclaimed artists commissioned by MONA, TMAG, QVMAG, and more, through our visiting artist programs.
  • Practice in generous and creative spaces that fuel your imagination. Our campuses, located in the heart of each city’s cultural precinct, occupy Hobart’s former IXL Jam Factory and Launceston’s historic Western Railway Yard.

Delivered by the School of Creative Arts, we will connect you with visiting artists and designers through our partnerships with acclaimed events such as Dark Mofo, Ten Days on the Island, Junction Arts Festival and The Unconformity, through Artist in Residence and Arts Forum programs. This degree also provides global creative and cultural context, with industry, community and research opportunities available in Tasmania, interstate and overseas.
