Sydney College of the Arts Open Day

Saturday 31 August, 10am to 4pm

The University of Sydney's school of contemporary art, SCA is a premier provider of art and media education and research. SCA has been the major training ground for Sydney's leading contemporary artists for nearly forty years.

The Open Day is a fantastic opportunity for you to meet our staff, visit our extensive studio and workshop facilities, and find out about our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

You can also find out about the new Bachelor of Visual Arts, a degree that will prepare you to succeed as a practising artist or in a range of creative careers, and become an expert in developing artistic and creative responses to the big issues driving contemporary society.

Taught by practising artists, this hands-on degree will give you skills in a range of media and the opportunity to broaden your education through electives on offer across the university.

You can specialise in painting, photomedia, printmedia, screen arts, sculpture (including ceramics and glass), jewellery and object, all underpinned by vigorous theory and critical studies. And with a unique part-time pathway, studying visual arts is now even more possible.

All day events at the Open Day include the Portfolio Development Drop-In Centre, the Camouflage Cultures exhibition, tours of the campus, film screenings, talks about the new Bachelor of Visual Arts, parents' seminars, demonstrations, workshops, entertainment, plus much more…
