The Future is Art

The National Art School is Australia’s leading fine art school, with a successful studio-based teaching model that has delivered a rich tradition of artistic practice and generations of world-renowned alumni. We are a progressive and holistic art school and we look forward to sharing it with you on Open Day.

Explore our studios and working spaces, visit NAS Gallery, meet our faculty and students, get advice about your study options and the application process, and get involved in interactive art workshops – including watching the live bronze pour, and participating in screenprinting, life drawing and much more.
