The National Art School offers a range of programs for under 18s that support the development of their skills and encourage creativity.

Art Club

The Art Club workshops for high school students are designed to enhance and extend students’ technical, conceptual, and intellectual skills under the direction of experienced artists through intensive practical study in the disciplines offered at NAS as well as engaging in an experience of NAS studios and campus.

Students will develop their skill sets whilst investigating a variety of media and techniques. Each term is based on a separate discipline.
