Adelaide Central School of Art is an independent, not-for-profit, accredited Higher Education Provider that offers intensive training for students looking to develop careers as practising artists. The School offers undergraduate degrees, specialist short courses, workshops and masterclasses. In our studio based teaching program we emphasise structured sequential learning developing practical skills in parallel with rigorous intellectual inquiry.
As a single-focus art school, all classes are led by lecturers who are leading practitioners in their field. The School is recognised nationally for its excellence in educational practice and student success.
Students benefit from the range of experience and expertise offered by its staff of respected contemporary artists, writers and curators. Small class sizes and one-on-one interaction with lecturers create an environment that is both challenging and supportive.
The School offers both day and evening classes, with the flexibility of enrolling in either single or multiple subjects catering to both full-time and part-time students.
The extended 34 week academic year is deemed essential by the School as it enables increased studio time and enhanced learning opportunities.
Adelaide Central School of Art is more than a school of excellence: it is an intense community of committed students and teachers. Formal learning is supplemented by a cooperative atmosphere of informal exchange of ideas and peer learning between students of all year levels.
