2019 applications for the Byron School of Art are now open. The BSA offers a series of year-long courses that provide an extensive grounding in the Visual Arts. These are structured programs incorporating drawing, painting, printmaking, 3D studies, design principles, art history and critical thinking regarding contemporary practice.
Students can study for one to three years, beginning with the Visual Arts Foundation, leading on to Visual Arts Practice in second year, and then to the Research & Portfolio Course in third year. Course activities include studio work, ﬁeld trips, gallery visits, guest lecturers, and group exhibitions.
The BSA will also be hosting an open day on October 14. From 11am to 2pm, you can drop in and walk through the studios and exhibition space in Mullumbimby, view current students' work and participate in the open drawing studio. It's a great way to find out more about the BSA and what they offer in terms of Visual Arts Education. For those interested in the Long-Course applications, there is an information session at 12pm.
