Established in 1881, the Queensland College of Art is one of Australia’s longest-running art and design colleges. It offers the widest range of visual art programs in Australia, and includes the Griffith Film School, which moved into new purpose-built premises at South Bank, Queensland, Australia in March 2007. The Queensland College of Art is part of Griffith University.
The College traces its origin to a drawing class at the Brisbane School of Arts, which was attended by 22 students. We celebrated our 125th anniversary in 2006 and today we are a community of around 1200 artists, designers, animators, photographers, film-makers.
Over the years we have brought together some of the finest practitioners and academics in the areas of visual arts, design, Indigenous art and the moving image, and produced some of Australia’s leading visual artists and designers who have helped to shape the art and design culture of Queensland and Australia.
