Adelaide Central School of Art

Adelaide Central School of Art Capital Works Campaign

Adelaide Central School of Art is an independent, not-for-profit, accredited Higher Education Provider that offers intensive training for studenst looking to develop a career as a practising artist.

The School is recognised nationally for its excellence in educational practice and student success. Students benefit from the range of experience and expertise offered by its staff of respected contemporary artists, writers and curators.

Adelaide Central School of Art is more than a school of excellence: it is an intense community of committed students and teachers. All lecturers are leading practitioners in the field in which they teach. In our studio based teaching program we emphasise structured sequential learning developing practical skills in parallel with rigorous intellectual inquiry.

Why are we collecting funds?

We invite you to invest in the future of South Australia's only independent art school. As a not-for-profit organisation the School relies on income generated from student fees, fundraising activities, private donations and corporate sponsorship. Your support ensures the School remains a South Australian cultural asset that makes a vital contribution to art education.

As part of the next stage of refurbishment of its historic premises the School seeks support for the development of the Southern Courtyard.

The School will create a shared workspace in the southern courtyard of our Glenside Campus that will provide an extension to the facilities of the Teaching and Studio Building. This workspace will include sheltered structures and improved teaching facilities for sculpture, installation and performance to enable our students to work outside year-round with protection from the elements in a secure environment.

The School is working in collaboration with Skein Architects in this design development stage of this project. In addition to funds already raised by the School in 2015/16 the School's Board have allocated additional funds to enable the project to proceed.The School will be working closely with Arts SA and the other agencies working in the Glenside Cultural and Health Precinct.
