Student story

Picture of Carlo de Bono a Certificate IV in Visual Arts student

"The thing I enjoyed most about studying at The Gordon was learning and working with teachers who are established art practitioners. The ‘hands-on’ learning and opportunity to refine technical skills in an art studio, while creatively collaborating with other students was such a great experience. I appreciated the opportunity to exhibit my art work in a number of student exhibitions, and developed some lasting friendships with other students from the course"
