Pathways to NAS


The safety, health and wellbeing of the National Art School and the wider community is of upmost importance. With this in mind and in light of the current COVID-19 advice from the NSW Department of Health, the National Art School will run workshops online in January 2021.

At the National Art School we believe that the arts are pivotal to a well-rounded school education. We equip young adults with the ability to think laterally, develop problem solving skills and expand their creativity. We are committed to nurturing and fostering the talents of Australia’s future great artists through a comprehensive and dynamic program of learning and development that prepares students for life beyond the classroom.

For children and young people we offer school holiday, after school and weekend workshops to develop their ideas and practical skills in artmaking across each of the six disciplines offered here at the National Art School.

Our Education Programs complement classroom teaching and learning. We offer a range of programs focused on developing links to the school sector such as practical artmaking workshops and professional development sessions for teachers. We offer tailored school programs for students in metropolitan Sydney and regional NSW areas, as well as focused exhibition viewings and studio and history tours on campus.
