ARTS PROJECT AUSTRALIA
– TEMPORARY CLOSURE –
Over this year, we have been keeping a very close eye on COVID-19 daily cases and government advice. From early June, we were engaging in a very slow return to the studio for a limited number of artists. Since the introduction of stage 3, and now stage 4, restrictions, the progression of transmission of COVID19 in the community and with the interests and health of both staff and artists in mind, we have made the decision to close the APA premises for the foreseeable future.
Artists who have been working in the studio will be invited to rejoin our remote delivery program, and this program will continue uninterrupted for all those artists currently participating. If you have not yet joined the remote studio program I encourage you to make contact with us to arrange this. We hope all our artists and their families stay safe and healthy, and look forward to seeing you again when the Victorian restrictions ease. Regular updates from our management team will be posted to our website, with more detailed information for artists, families and carers available on our Studio Page. We wish everyone all the best in these challenging times.

I highly recommend Arts Project as an empowering
place to work and create.

Our world-class studio program offers these artists access to professional-grade materials, the support of our highly qualified team of staff artists, and the chance to develop their art practice in an integrative, multi-disciplinary environment. To read more about several of our artist’s stories please take a look at our 2014 publication So Far….
Through our 2D, Ceramics, Printmaking, Digital, 3D and Professional Practice programs, attending artists have the opportunity to explore, develop and expand their art practice through a range of disciplines. Artists also have the potential to exhibit their artwork, through the Arts Project gallery, external galleries and venues, and the leasing program. Artworks created in this unique environment feature in collections and museums worldwide.
Arts Project Australia provides a safe and supportive environment that encourages the artists to stretch their creativity and artistic practice. I am unsure if artists working alone, or in an environment that wasn’t dedicated to their needs, would demonstrate the same creativity.

Arts Project is a very professional organisation with a person-centred approach to its artists. I see a vision to support their artists to create independently and unhindered, always encouraging the development of their skills… Our son has greatly developed his artistic ability over a period of ten years at Arts Project and is establishing himself as an artist with a distinct style that attracts buyers Australia-wide and overseas.
