Latrobe College of Art & Design is one Melbourne’s leading colleges in visual art. Our Collingwood studio warehouse provides a dynamic environment in which to study and develop creative and technical skills in a variety of disciplines.
Intimate class sizes and opportunity for one-to-one teaching allows students to rapidly forge a creative style and cultivate an independent visual art practice. In their second year of study, Advanced Diploma students will be allotted their own individual studio space in which to work and create their art. Our visual art courses are taught in fully equipped studios with up-to-date materials to create an inspiring learning environment. Our facilities include digital labs, workshops, and common rooms to create a supportive, community-driven environment for students who are seriously committed to developing their art practice.
Students also exhibit their work in the Latrobe College Gallery Space and each year have opportunities to join our annual trips to New York, the Venice Biennale or Berlin to complete an intensive study unit.
Students can go also on to further study at university level and receive credit for their study in these programs.
Our visual arts programs uphold a strong reputation for success. We welcome a wide range of the creatively curious, from beginners to experienced artists wanting to hone their craft. Latrobe College of Art & Design is home to students of all ages, including local and overseas artists.
