Welcome Message from the Principal - Sydney Art School
Congratulations on your decision to study at the Sydney Art School.
Sydney Art School is known for training students to the highest standards in the skills of drawing, painting and silversmithing. These skills provide the essential foundation that enable artists to develop their own signature style and then explore ways to communicate their messages with their audience.
Our primary teaching method is modeled on the Atelier tradition where students in a small groups learn their craft from established fine artists.
The School is committed to providing high quality vocational education and training programs. This gives students the opportunity to learn new skills, upgrade existing skills and obtain Nationally Recognised Qualifications. The School offers a range of professional development courses and registered training in Visual Arts at Certificate and Diploma levels.
Courses are delivered in face-to-face Studio Sessions with take-home workbooks, and dedicated tutor support. Studio sessions are limited to group sizes of 8 to 10 students. This enables one on one interaction with your tutor as well as a fostering a small group environment where students can interact and share ideas, perspectives and learning experiences.
Our family of tutors bring together some of Australia’s award winning artists with professional art practitioners and educators. Your tutor’s role is to give you “in studio” instruction on technique combined with personal feedback to help develop your technical and professional skills as an artist. For Certificate and Diploma level students will also give you guidance on how to complete the workbooks and portfolios of evidence required to be assessed as competent in each unit of study.
I wish you every success as you embark on your creative journey.
