Creative Tasmania is a collaboration between the creative arts schools at UTAS: the Tasmanian School of Art, the School of Visual and Performing Arts, and the Conservatorium of Music.
The teaching staff are sourced from amongst Tasmania’s own experienced practicing artists and invited visiting practitioners from the mainland.
The program has been developed from the very successful Tasmania Creative Arts School program that has run at the University’s Inveresk Campus over the past five years.
Held during the month of January, Creative Tasmania Summer School workshops’ will offer participants the opportunity to explore a wide range of artistic disciplines including visual art, craft and design, theatre and music.
Each workshop is open to the general public and students from colleges or who are currently enrolled at the University of Tasmania. Anyone over the age of 16 can apply. In a large number of our workshops you are able to choose whether you would like to be assessed for credit towards current or future University studies, or alternatively participate as a one-off non-assessment.
Workshops on offer at Launceston’s Inveresk Precinct and Hobart’s Waterfront Precinct include:
- Confronting MONA
- Stand-up Comedy
- Introduction to Installation Art
- The Artist Book
- Introduction to Alternative Jewellery Design
