Interiors - Design and Decoration for Living
Portfolio preparation for Interior Decoration and Design

'The Interior Design short courses are an excellent introduction to the elements and principles of design within the context of interior design and decoration. Students resolve visual and spatial problems in 2D and 3D practical projects.
Design and Decoration for Living is another great course centred around the residential living space and Portfolio Preparation for Interior Design and Decoration will assist in the creation of a targeted TAFE application folio.
I was drawn back to RMIT after studying here to become a teacher, as I have found it to be a great learning and teaching environment in which to develop creative and practical skills.
The approach I take in my work is to take a problem solving approach, exploring a range of ways to tackle any creative task. What excited me the most is helping to develop each student's individual style over the ten week course is enormously rewarding.'
