This major is designed for those who wish to become professional artists or pursue a wide range of careers in the growing creative industries.

You will focus on a variety of disciplines, including painting, print media, sculpture, drawing, installation and photography. Fine art students are creative people who wish to contribute to the artistic, aesthetic and social needs of contemporary society.

Industry experience

The annual end-of-year student exhibition features the work of graduating and honours students. This exhibition will provide you with the chance to present and network with key gallery contacts, potential buyers, the media and other artists.

Teaching methods

Once you have selected a studio area, a tutor will be allocated to you. Your tutor will provide academic supervision during each semester. 

You will also attend regular studio tutorials. All teaching staff are practising professional artists or theoreticians, designers or craft practitioners of high standing with national or international exhibition and academic records. 

Visiting artists, curators and theorists also contribute to the teaching program through guest lectures and residencies. 

Curtin has an established Artist in Residence program that brings artists of international reputation to work on campus.

Fine art is offered as part of the Bachelor of Arts. You can enhance your studies with a secondary major or choose from a range of elective units to support your career goals.

JETA program

Offered by the School of Media, Creative Arts and Social Inquiry, the JETA program was initiated in 1995 to provide access to Higher Education for incarcerated students. The program has grown substantially with many students successfully completing the Associate Degree in Visual Art, Bachelor in Visual Art and Masters in Visual Art.

High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
