​​Newcastle Art School is an exciting, intensive learning environment where all our teachers are recognised artists themselves.

Decked out with the latest technology, the Hunter Street Campus facility boasts drawing and painting studios, printmaking facilities, a design room, traditional and digital photography lab and a sculpture facility.

The focus of our courses is developing students into professional artists. Many of the skills developed at the School are useful in a range of work environments.  Newcastle Art School has trained curators, press photographers, staff of state museums and independent arts entrepreneurs.

Whatever your aspirations in the art world, getting the right training can open doors for your career.
