byron school of art


Established in 2013, the Byron School of Art (BSA) is an independently run, non-profit tertiary art school based on an international model of artists teaching artists. With a primary focus on studio-based learning, BSA also offers education through an integrated approach to professional exhibition practice and community-engagement.

Presenting rigorous and practice-based programs in the visual arts and related fields, BSA provides practical pathways to meet our student’s individual needs. We aim to engender an understanding in the student that artistic practice can be developed and sustained over a lifetime.

BSA offers support for emerging and established artists as well as being an encouraging platform for those seeking introduction into the field. Students are guided in developing a strong work practice that is open to critical and creative thinking, informed by an understanding of contemporary debate that is grounded in technical and practical ability.

Courses are run by nationally recognised professional artists, who bring to the school a passion for their practice combined with extensive experience teaching at community and tertiary levels.

BSA offers mentorship sessions tailored for individuals and small groups, and works in partnership with c.a.s.e inc to offer monthly artist talks through Art in the Pub.  

While applications for our annual Long Courses open in August of each year, we offer a range of Short Courses and Weekend Workshops throughout the year.
