Study

Classes are taught at our award-winning Glenside campus in Adelaide, by nationally-recognised artists.

We offer accredited programs in visual art spanning one, two  and three years which can be completed at a full-time or part-time rate. We also offer an Honours in visual art for students wanting to extend their skills after completing a Bachelor of Visual Art.

We also offer a rotating program of 6-week courses and intensives in our popular Short Course program.

Arrange to take a tour of the Teaching and Studio Building and meet with our Student Liaison Officer, Andrew Herpich by calling (08) 8299 7300. If you’re interstate, you can also arrange a virtual tour of the campus and find out about Interstate Relocation Grants and scholarships.

Vanguard Program

The Vanguard Program gives senior secondary students a chance to sample a tertiary visual arts education while completing their SACE studies.

“While Adelaide Central School of Art seemed to mesh with my adolescent romantic notions of what an art school should be, it also defied my expectations (in the best possible way) and extended my thinking in ways I could never have predicted. The passion and enthusiasm of the teaching staff was palpable and infectious. The sense of community was incredibly strong and led to the forging of life-long friendships and professional relationships”
