Visual Arts – School of Visual and Performing Arts

At the beginning of 2002 the School was located to the new Academy of Arts at Inveresk.

The Bachelor of Contemporary Arts draws on synergies between art, theatre and music. Students may take advantage of the new teaching partnership with TAFE Tasmania, and opportunities for teaching and learning offered by the near-by Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery.

Theory (Launceston)

The program introduces students to major theories of the arts and cultural practice. The first year of the program presents the contemporary arts in their broader cultural context and, in the second semester, introduces the historical foundations for current art practice.

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Contemporary Arts (BCA) take core units FFA102 Introduction to Cultural Practices 1 and FFA103 Introduction to Cultural Practices 2 in Year 1, and do a further 25% (minimum) at level 200/300 in Years 2 and/or 3.

Students may elect to do a Theory Studies major in the BCA, consisting of FFA102 and FFA103 and a further 100% (8 x 12.5%) single-semester units at level 200/300.

FFA102 and FFA103 may be taken in Year 2 of the Diploma of Fine Art and Design in place of FFD281 Drawing 2A and FFD282 Drawing 2B .
