The hallmark of MADA’s Bachelor of Fine Art is our open approach, encouraging you to find and develop your own artistic voice. You will receive individual tuition with some of Australia’s best artists, have access to studio space and enjoy cutting-edge facilities.

Your visual language and conceptual skills will be challenged and enhanced within a rigorous structure and a supportive environment. You will graduate with critically informed studio practice and the confidence to succeed as a professional artist who can shape the future of contemporary art.

Through this component of the course you will develop key skills and concepts particular to your Fine art specialisation. Through lectures and seminars, studios or practice driven workshops, you will develop the capacity for independent cultural production within Fine Art and related fields. Interdisciplinary skills and understanding will be explored, as well as critical thinking.
