Art and design courses

Your passion for drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics or photography can be taken to a new level with an arts and design course at NSI. You can choose from a Certificate III to a Diploma or Advanced Diploma in Visual Arts and we also offer a specialised Visual Arts (Ceramics) stream.

A broad range of short courses is also available, including some half-day classes, in a range of areas such as drawing, travel sketching, lino printmaking, botanical drawing, portraits in paint and creative camera techniques.

Our Open Studio program gives practicing artists access to the latest technology and equipment. As a participant you are given the opportunity to engage with fellow students working in similar mediums under the guidance of industry qualified teachers.
