They can help you discover your creativity, tell your personal story and express your culture through a range of visual mediums. You can study the Certificate I to Certificate IV in Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Cultural Arts.

The CIT Yurauna Centre's partnerships with the Canberra Glassworks, Indigenous Textiles and Glassworks group (founded by Yurauna Centre teachers) and other links with the wider Indigenous art community ensure you will learn new and exciting as well as traditional techniques, get real-world experience and gain invaluable industry connections.
