WELCOME TO BRISBANE INSTITUTE OF ART

Explore our website to view and enrol in all available Art workshops and classes. We regularly release new programs of art workshops, short courses and semester classes, so sign up below for 'email alerts' and we will send you an email whenever there is a new exhibition or we release a new program.

We offer classes for all abilities in wonderful studios with ample parking, minutes from the CBD. We have a great choice of courses including Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Printmaking, Ceramics, Web design, Jewellery and Children’s Art, all of which are taught by expert tutors, specialist in their respective fields. Art classes at BiA are a relaxing way to explore your creativity. They are structured and instructive, but enjoyable and energizing at the same time. A wide range of subjects and skill levels are available. Numbers in classes are kept to a maximum of 12 so that the tutor has plenty of time to speak to each student individually, as well as teaching the group as a whole. There is a great sense of community at BiA so many students continue with their classes term after term, sometimes in the same class sometimes progressing in skill level or changing subject. Everyone is welcome.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT BIA 

BIA is such a huge resource where artists and students do great work together and generosity of spirit is very apparent. It deserves a high profile in the City's arts and general community. Mary 2016

I have taken three classes at BIA so far and I really like the range of classes offered as well as the teachers that I had. I really enjoy meeting people with the same passion and interest and am glad that I have a place close to me that I can go to. Thank you for all the hard work behind the scenes. Sylvia 2016

My mum has taken classes with you guys before (probably about 10 years prior) and she recommended I give it a shot. Both of us were/are supremely happy with our experience, so keep up the good stuff guys! Jackie 2016

I have done a couple of short courses here now and have thoroughly enjoyed both and found them to be worthwhile. Thank you BIA!  Lucy 2016

I have only attended a weekend class at the BIA, but have thoroughly enjoyed the teaching and being able to explore creatively. I would recommend the BIA to anyone who would like to discover and learn new artistic skills. Kay 2016

I am truly enjoying my classes with Lizzie. She makes the classes fun and her style of teaching is very relaxing but the element of challenge is there to stretch us out of our comfort zone-well done!  Maria 2016 

Thoroughly enjoying classes will definitely be back next year. Ian 2016

Wish I didn't have to work full time and could attend more classes!! Ann 2016 

Your courses have been life-changing for me. Thankyou. Christina 2016 

BIA, a black diamond in the suburbs.  Deborah 2016

I really enjoyed my class and when I can fit in another class around work and kids I will come again. It was a very worthwhile experience. Natalie 2016

A fantastic place. Worth the trip from the Sunshine Coast.  So many great workshops. Emma 2016

 

 

 

Metcalfe Gallery
 
August 3 - 14 10am - 4pm
Opening Friday 3 August from 6:00pm
 
 

 

Lyrique: Echoes of the Personal

An exhibition from members of the printmaking group 'The Collective'.

Lyrics and music can evoke in us anything from pure flights of fancy through to powerful emotional, intellectual and sensory responses.

The works created are very personal responses, echoing and exploring the visceral responses of the artists to music and lyrics.

It is often difficult to articulate the feelings evoked by music and lyrics and, rather than being illustrative, the artists have attempted to express the emotional reactions they experience.

New works on paper and off the wall pieces reflecting the group’s recent extension of printmaking into other media and techniques will be exhibited.
