  3. CUA41315 CERTIFICATE IV IN VISUAL ARTS

The visual arts are arts that we see. Visual arts are things like paintings, drawings, visual designs, printmaking and computer art.

Art has its own language. The language of the visual arts is feeling: emotion, intuition, and form or idea without words. Through paintings, drawings, and other visual arts, you can discover worlds of experience that are all around us, or within us, that cannot be described quickly or easily with mere words. The visual arts can help you give meaning to what seems meaningless and help you recapture feelings and experiences that we have once had or would like to have again.
