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).
