BSA offers a range of visual arts courses. Whether you are visiting the region for the weekend, have a day a week to join a short course, prefer to go to night school, or see youself immersed in visual arts study for one, two or three years, we have something to offer everyone!

Our courses are facilitated by nationally recognised practicing artists with extensive experience teaching at community and tertiary levels. As part of our Ralph Woodford Artist Residency program, several times a year our Weekend Workshops are run by visiting artists in residence and offer our community unique opportunities to learn from artists who practice elsewhere in Australia or the world.

For a small sample of courses we offer through the year at BSA, each Summer and Winter we run a series of Taster Sessions. For one week in January and July we offer a savoury selection of three-hour classes in a range of disciplines with our talented teaching staff. This gives students the chance to try a bit of everything before deciding to enrol in a course or workshop. Sign up for one, two or the lot! Join our mailing list to find out when they’re on the menu.
