Creative Arts

Do you want the creative freedom to make anything?

This is a fun, student-driven course that will give you the freedom to develop your skills and create artworks in a style that interest you! You will spend the majority of your time planning and making two individual artworks that you develop from overarching themes. The course caters for students who wish to explore the following mediums: painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed media, video, textiles, animation, photography, printmaking, glass, or any combination of these.

Guest speakers, artists and Art teachers work as a team to coach and mentor students through the practical and theoretical aspects of the course. Students don’t need to be overly proficient in any one area when they enter the course, as they will develop skills along the way.
