Creativity and skill development are fostered through a rich and diverse Visual Arts Curriculum. The breadth of experiences prepares your child for a range of career pathways and opportunities in the Visual Arts.
Firbank offers an integrated curriculum of 2D and 3D Art Programs developing skills in areas such as painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, photography, media, visual communication and design and media.
