What does the Workshop Arts Centre do?
The Workshop Arts Centre provides an alternative to existing art schools and a supplement to existing art societies. The aim is to encourage and develop individual contemporary and challenging work in all fields of artistic expression. The WAC is supported in its aims and endeavours by a group of independent teaching artists. Today the WAC is a busy place where over thirty teaching and visiting artists offer first-rate tuition across some fifty classes each week, in the fine arts genres of painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, photography, jewellery and children's art.
How is it funded?
The Workshop Arts Centre maintains itself from annual membership subscriptions, studio hire fees from teachers and artists, income from gallery hire and sales from the Ewart Gallery. These have always been supplemented by fundraising functions and donations. All donations of $2.00 or more are tax deductible.
Is there a membership requirement?
Membership is available to all and is separate from student enrolment into a class. Becoming a member of the Workshop Arts Centre entitles you to many benefits.

Can I exhibit?
The Ewart Gallery was named in honour of the Workshop Art Centre's founding member, the late Joy Ewart. The exhibition program includes works of visiting artists, members, students and teachers, some of whom are represented in prestigious collections both in Australia and overseas. The exhibitions committee welcomes exhibition proposals from individuals and groups of artists to contribute to a diverse program across a range of disciplines.
