Working at NAS

About the National Art School

The National Art School is a vibrant creative precinct at the forefront of learning, creativity and innovative practice; nationally and internationally. The School utilises its independent identity and distinctive studio-based teaching model to deliver exceptional higher education and research, scholarship and professional practice in the visual arts and related fields. The School is the longest established publicly funded art school in Australia with John Olsen, Margaret Olley, Tim Storrier, Ken Unsworth, Fiona Hall, Susan Norrie, Cressida Campbell and Mitch Cairns among many successful alumni. The Australian Government’s QILT (Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching) National Report on the 2016 Student Experience showed the National Art School is rated number one in the overall quality of educational experience when compared to all universities and tertiary providers in Australia. In March 2019 the NSW Arts Minister announced a 45 year lease and ongoing funding as a State Significant Organisation (SSO).

Volunteer at the National Art School Gallery

The National Art School welcomes enthusiastic volunteers with strong communication skills to support front-of-house activities in our NAS Galleries. Volunteers are required to undertake front-of-house duties.

As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to work in a small friendly team and learn more about the National Art School and the inner workings of a busy public art gallery.

Volunteers receive special curatorial walk-throughs of exhibitions, invitations to lectures and special events, complimentary publications and library borrowing benefits.

We ask volunteers to work a minimum of one three-hour shift each fortnight and commit to the program for 12 months. Volunteer work takes place Monday to Saturday between 11am and 5pm.
