Course Overview

If you wish to express your passion for your culture through artistic endeavours, then our Certificate II in Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Cultural Arts course will help you on your way.

Your artistic work reveals more than just an expression. It reflects an awareness of identity and pride in your culture and visual arts training.

Our nationally recognised Certificate II includes specialised units to further enhance your studies and skills in different art forms, preparing you for a variety of arts-related careers.

There are numerous employment opportunities that will arise as a result of completing our qualification:

• Self-employed artist/crafts person
• Member of a co-operative producing art/craft works for sale
• Assistant in an established cultural art/ceramics environment

There is also an opportunity to exhibit your own work at the IEC's Art Exhibition at the end of every year.

There’s more good news, too. You'll be studying your cultural arts course at our Broadmeadows campus, which includes a dedicated Indigenous Education Centre (IEC) - awarded the 2013 Wurreker Award as the Training Provider/TAFE Institute of the Year. The IEC is a recognised leader and innovator in providing practical education and training that delivers real-world results.

Importantly, if you wish to continue studying, this course offers a pathway through to a nationally recognised Certificate IV level qualification.
