¿Qué aprenderé?

Artists create the beautiful, interesting and challenging things that make our environments unique and therefore make a strong and vital contribution to contemporary life.

If you already hold a degree but would like to develop your fine art skills, this programme offers the opportunity to carry out an intensive personalised course of study. The skills gained through an art qualification are highly valued in a huge variety of industries including education, design, management and marketing. You may become practicing artists in various disciplines and media, or consider a diverse and exciting range of careers including an Illustrator, Art Therapist, Researcher, Artists' Agent, Photojournalist or Colour Consultant.

Embrace the opportunity to specialise in Ceramics, Digital and Moving Image, Jewellery-Making and Metalsmithing, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture or Textiles. Typically, you would work in one of these areas but interdisciplinary work may be approved. Within the Dunedin School of Art, there is a strong focus on individual supervision and student-centred learning supported by an active community of artists to enhance professional development. You will benefit from the nationally unique workshop facilities and expertise of lecturers who have a diverse range of approaches and understandings in the fine arts and design.

Skills required

  • Creativity, imagination and motivation.
  • The ability to think laterally and independently.
