Please help the Print Department and order a phone book (free to do!!)


Hi guys!

As you know we use a lot of newspapers and phone books in the Print Department, however we are almost completely out of phone books as everyone has been etching up a storm! These are a little trickier to keep re-stocking than newspapers.

It would be very helpful if you could please request a yellow/whitepages to be sent to your home address (completely free to do) and then bring it in to NAS so we can re-stock our supply!

Just click on this link below. It will only take about 3 minutes of your time! 

Many thanks!


ART FORUM-Aboriginal Art Centre Internships

Aboriginal Art Centre Internships
Wednesday 17 October, 1–2pm, Black Theatre 

Each year, with the generous support of our donors Sharon Tofler and Mark Tedeschi AM QC, the National Art School is able to provide two ten week internships at Aboriginal Art Centres in the Northern Territory, at Ernabella Arts Incorporated and at Tapatjatjaka Arts. These internships provide graduating students with an opportunity to acquire practical arts management experience and training in an active Aboriginal community art centre environment. Interns have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with artists and day-to-day arts centre operations.

Before you apply for the 2019 internships, come to this Art Forum featuring Samara Hyde-Page (BFA Painting 2017) and Anerleigh Simms (BFA Printmaking 2016). Hear about their experiences in working in a new environment, and ask them any questions you might have about undertaking the internship.

Samara Hyde-Page worked at Ernabella Arts Incorporated in far north-west South Australia, and Anerleigh Simms worked at Tapatjatjaka Arts at Titjikala in the Northern Territory in 2017. Jordan Taylor is currently interning at Tapatjatjaka Arts.

Applications for the 2019 internships close on Friday 9 November 2018.



IMG_0552.jpeg“William Kentridge emerged as an artist during the apartheid regime in South Africa. Grounded in the violent absurdity of that period in his country’s history, his artworks draw connections between art, ideology, history and memory.

Curated by the artist, this exhibition encourages viewers to trace visual and thematic links between diverse aspects of his practice, from his engagement with opera to his interest in early cinema, from his inimitable animated drawings to sculpture and works on paper.”
