VCE Studio Arts

4CATS Education aim to support teachers in their role as a senior art educator. We also help aim to help students achieve their best possible result. We value high quality content and seek to present an innovative approach to learning the Key Knowledge and Key Skills required by VCAA for the successful completion of VCE Studio Arts. Our aim is to make the study of Studio Arts not only enjoyable but manageable for students and teachers. We design our publications, our online introductory video lectures and school lectures in a clear and comprehensive way.

We offer teachers publications as a key reference or for students as a content driven guide to all components of the Studio Arts Study Design.

OUT NOW – our new full colour 320+ pages VCE Studio Arts textbook called STUDIO KNACK Units 1 to 4.

OUT NOW – NEW online  Video lectures for VCE Studio Arts students and teachers.

OUT NOW – Informative school lectures on the Art Industry, Exhibition Reviews and Exam Preparation for schools throughout Victoria either at school locations or in Flinders Lane, Melbourne.

In 2017, we welcome the new VCE Studio Arts Study Design AND our first ever full colour publication for VCE Studio Arts Units 1 > Unit 4 – STUDIO KNACK.

We are loving your new textbook from Heather Dale and Anita Petrik teachers at Warrandyte High School, Melbourne.

STUDIO KNACK is a most accurate resource for the new VCE Studio Arts Study Design and inspires confidence in my students to know how to extend their creative output from Yudha Scholes at Scotch College, Melbourne.

The Studio Arts teacher and myself have been impressed with our initial inspections of the textbook Studio Knack, especially the layout and the use of so many contemporary illustrations and methodologies from Trish McCann Head of Library, FCJ College, Benalla, Victoria.

We are using STUDIO KNACK, as our Studio Arts textbook for Year 11 and Year 12. It is well written, follows the VCAA Study Design intelligently, is beautiful visually, hence my students love using it from Susan Pavolich Horsham College Horsham, Victoria.

I wish all textbooks were this engaging from a student at Horsham College, Horsham.

With unique qualifications in Education and the Australian Art Industry 4CATS Education were the first to produce a publication written specifically for VCE Studio Arts Unit 3 / 4. 4CATS Education have proven that writing high quality content is favoured by teachers and students alike. Our publications go well beyond being a guideline textbook. Our publications are simply presented and yet are the most consistently sought after VCE Studio Arts reference books for their quality information. In 2017, we expanded our resources to include not only our new textbook STUDIO KNACK but also Online Video Lectures for Studio Arts students. We continue to push the boundaries and aim to publish the best, most consistent and relevant resources for VCE Studio Arts.
