All classes are led by contemporary practising artists who will become your artistic peers. Our administration team also employs artists and can help you navigate further study.

Our networks in the visual arts industry – globally and nationally – are another opportunity for you to immerse yourself in an artistic community. We regularly host artists, academics and industry professionals who contribute their knowledge and experience to our program, including our ArtSpeak series and guest lectures, forums, masterclasses and residencies.
