Support us on our creative journey....

Since moving to the Glenside Cultural Precinct in 2013, the School has grown and developed within the government regulated Australian Tertiary Education sector. The architect-designed renovated Teaching and Studio Building one of two buildings the School occupies, won the 2014 SA Architecture Award for the Heritage Section. 

Our success is reliant on financial support. The School has received significant support from the SA Government through the 50-year lease of the first two main buildings. The School financed the capital development of the buildings through a commercial bank loan and also both large and small donations by individuals and corporations. Unlike other tertiary education organisations the School is not in receipt of State or Federal funding to subsidise operating expenses.

That's why we need your support.

We invite you to invest in the future of South Australia’s only independent art school. The School has Tax Deductible Gift Recipient Status so all donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Your donation will contribute to the fit-out and development of facilities, resources and programs that will benefit the students and larger community including in 2015:

  • Sculpture Courtyard - to provide a support structure for students to work outside in all seasons
  • Student Scholarships - for talented students to support their study in the BVA and BVA(Hons) programs
  • Adelaide Central Gallery – extend the program of exhibitions and provide greater support for artists
  • Outreach Program – more visits to secondary schools, lectures and artists talks

Our sponsorship packages include naming rights for prominent areas in the School and we have an ongoing program to provide support for student studios. For further information, please contact Ingrid Kellenbach, Chief Executive Officer.
