Course content

Transform your practice - and grow as an artist, professional and art educator. On this course you’ll develop your artistic practice. You’ll push boundaries and take creative risks. You’ll create, exhibit, interpret and reflect on art. And you’ll witness your growth as an artist. You’ll learn as part of a vibrant and supportive community of art educators and professional artists who are passionate about art. You’ll have the freedom to take your learning and your practice in any direction you choose. And you can focus on any medium - like:

  • painting
  • ceramics
  • textiles
  • video
  • sound
  • performance

As you develop artistically, you’ll also broaden your art teaching skill set. You’ll spark new ideas and create new teaching approaches. You’ll emerge equipped to break into art teaching or ready to take your teaching to the next level. And you’ll have a professional practice that stands up to artistic scrutiny.
