Creative arts

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts.

Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.

Students must study 100 hours of both music and visual arts during Years 7 to 10. They also have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in other art forms through elective subjects. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.

Creative & Performing Arts elective choices available to TPHS students throughout Stage 5 and 6.
