Bachelor of Fine Art

Our Bachelor of Fine Art degree is designed to impart the skills, knowledge and creative independence required to sustain a career as an artist.

This individual development requires a holistic approach to art education - one that we have always believed is best accommodated by students learning the skills and knowledge of the studio through studio practice under the guidance of established artists.

NAS has long been recognised for our use of this studio model of learning. Our focus on small class sizes ensures that every student receives individual guidance and that their independent exploration of art making is informed by a comprehensive knowledge of the historical underpinnings of that practice as well as the dynamic range of contemporary possibilities for art practice today.

The BFA comprises three interrelated areas of study: Drawing, Art History & Art Theory and Studio. Study in these key subject areas continues throughout all three years of the degree.
