Welcome to Visual Arts at Tuakau College!

Visual Arts students explore, refine and communicate their own artistic ideas by responding to how art expresses identity, culture, ethnicity, ideas, feelings, moods, beliefs, political viewpoints and personal perspectives. Through engaging in the Visual Arts, students learn how to discern, participate in, and celebrate their own and others visual worlds.
