Q: What level of experience do you require for your courses?
A: Our courses are designed and our instructors are chosen specifically to cater to all levels of artists. You don't need experience, just a willingness to learn.
Q: Where are you located?
A: The Art Academy is a pop-up art program so we don't have a permanent brick and mortar facility. We are currently holding our courses at CDW Studios, which is located on Level 4 of the Myer Centre in the heart of Adelaide's CBD.
Q: How often do you run workshops?
A: We operate a Summer Program and a Winter Program. Typically the summer program falls in January and the Winter program in June or July.
Q: Can I pay via Bank Transfer?
A: Yes! Just drop us an email at and we will send you an invoice with all of the payment details.
Q: Can I confirm my place by paying a deposit?
A: Yes! Email us at to arrange a deposit. Please note that deposits are non-refundable.
Q: What does it mean when you say that "students will be allowed to pick their seating position in order of full payment".
A: Each seat on the studio floor is allocated. Closer to the start date of the course we send out a seating chart that allows students to pick where they sit. This chart is sent to one student at a time in order of the date they made full payment for their course.
Q: What time do the courses run?
A: A typical day starts at 9am with a one hour lunch break at 12pm. The days conclude at either 5pm or 6pm depending on the course.
Q: Can you suggest some accommodation?
A: We are more than happy to assist in locating accommodation for visiting students. As the workshops are located in the heart of the city there are plenty of great hotel, motel and airbnb options.
Q: What do I need to bring?
A: You can download workshop handbooks for each course which will list the supplies needed. Additionally, the Art Academy in partnership with Premier Art Supplies operates a fully stocked art store at each workshop that has all of the supplies listed. We also offer the option of pre ordering supply packs and even rental programs for those who don't want to travel with their supplies or buy a full kit.
Q: Do you have a phone number?
A: Yes! You can call us on (08) 8312 5972 from Monday through Friday between the hours of 9am-5pm to answer all of your questions.
