INFORMATION: STUDIO PROGRAM AND SATELLITE ARTS 

Arts Project’s world-class studio program offers 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. The studio program is offered both in-person at the Northcote-based studio or online via Satellite Arts. 

A
Through the 2D, Ceramics, Printmaking, Digital, 3D and Professional Practice programs, 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.

Instead of attending the studio, artists from around Australia can choose to participate in Satellite Arts. The online program is operated on Zoom and supported by professional staff artists and is tailored to individual artist’s working preferences and facilitated in both group and individual video conferencing sessions. Satellite Arts online infrastructure provides artists living in regional areas or with limited mobility access to the supportive studio. At present 160+ artists are enrolled and attend the studio each week, either in person or online, with individual attendances ranging from one day a week to full-time.

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.
