What is the difference between a course and a workshop?

Courses run on a weekly basis during the four school terms each year. Each course runs for 4, 6 or 8 weeks (see the specific course page for details). Our courses have been designed to be progressive, so that you can confidently move from one level to the next, knowing that you have all of the skills you need to advance to the next stage.

Workshops range from 1 to 5 days and are taught by sought after professional guest artists from Queensland, interstate and overseas.  They are a once off event and are held at various times throughout the year, both during and outside of the term schedule.

How soon do I need to enrol and pay for special guest artists workshops?

As soon as possible! Due to the calibre of our guest artists, workshops usually book out quickly. If you miss out, we can put your name on a waiting list in case of cancellations. But the best way to avoid disappointment is to book your place early.

When should I purchase my art materials for a course or workshop?

On the rare occasion, a course or workshop has to be cancelled. Once you have enrolled, please hold off purchasing any required art materials until you receive confirmation that the course or workshop is going ahead. This confirmation will usually be sent out via email at least 5 days before the course/workshop is due to commence.
