Visual Arts

We are all creative. Whether we ever had permission to explore imagination and develop artist techniques is a different matter. Even childhoods filled with a passion for art can fall into the rut of adulthood where the proverbial hamster wheel is always chasing time. Step off the wheel and see how art classes for adults can change your perspective. Our classes run daytime, evenings and weekends, and we offer everything from drawing and painting to photography and practical art. Located in Sydney’s Central Business District, every art course is accessible to everyone with public transport nearby and a building that is disabled friendly.
