It is important to note that all the qualifications listed above are two year programs and the students who start in 2014 must select the certificate again for Year 12 and complete all Units of Competency to be awarded the full qualification.

The ability of AtwellCollegeto deliver a Certificate III in Visual Arts is a credit to talented Mr Michael Kimbar and the Arts Department at Atwell College. Mr Michael Kimbar is an award-winning sculptural artist who has developed a program in partnership with Central Institute of Technology that meets the rigorous compliance requirements for this level of qualification. Students who have selected the Certificate III in Visual Arts will learn how to create two and three dimensional forms in a variety of visual art mediums using skills in drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics and design.
