We are pleased to announce Northbridge School of Visual Arts was the winner of the North Shore Local Business Awards 2016. and was a Finalist in the 2017 Awards.



We thank our dedicated staff who continually strive to deliver innovative visual art programs for all ages. 

NSVA is a unique art school offering part time recreational and vocational visual Art Courses in Sydney to students of all ages and creative skill levels. Our small class sizes, wonderful light and  airy studio space and outdoor areas coupled with outstanding teachers provide a relaxed, nurturing environment for all students. We continually review our courses and are always looking to introduce  exciting new art courses and topics.

We offer exciting before and after school, Saturday and holiday Art Classes for Children aged from 5 -12 years and Teenagers from 13-18 years.. Before-school art classes include drop off to local schools and after-school classes pick up from Northbridge Public, St. Philip Neri and St Marks Pre-school.   Pick-ups from Cammeray, Willoughby, Artarmon, Anzac Park and other school pickups by arrangement.

We are still taking Term 2 enrolments for primary age children (vacancies for Monday, Tuesday and Sat only).

Our 2018 adult programs which comprise sessions in Mixed Media and  Acrylics, Life Drawing and Water Colour Painting, plus single Workshops in topics such as, Acrylic and Watercolour painting, Travel Sketchbooks, Life Drawing, Cartooning.   

Our Social Art Club which meets on Wednesday evenings beginning 9 May from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm in a relaxed environment (and with a glass of wine if you like).  Participants get advice from our experienced Tutor Matt Hamra and at the same time, enjoy some social interaction with like-minded others.   This is an ideal way to get started or get back into art. Matt will  help you experiment with different techniques and media and direct you in your choices.  You buy a  punch card with at least 5 sessions however ongoing involvement is of greater benefit and enables you to go from a Beginner to Intermediate and on to Advanced level. Discounts are available for longer commitments  - the longer your involvement, the greater the discount. You  may pop in whenever it is convenient. We clip your ticket as you attend. 

Our Art  Fundamentals course for beginners (or those who wish to go back to basics), and are hoping to provide sessions in photography, ceramics, digital art techniques,  video-related skills and other exciting topics. Details will be announced shortly.  

Expressions of interest in these and suggestions for other topics are always encouraged.
