Sturt Winter School

NSW Education Standards AuthorityThe first Sturt Winter School was held in July 2006, offering approximately 15 courses and has become a regular part of the Sturt calendar. Enjoy a real Highlands winter at Sturt and Frensham campus and be challenged by craft and art classes in a unique learning environment.

Sturt is an endorsed provider of professional development by the NSW Education Standards Authority, so the Winter School is also a great opportunity for educators to learn and expand their skills in an exciting and enjoyable environment.

2018 Winter School (9-13 July) was a great success with a record 140 adults and 53 children attending our week-long courses across all art and design mediums. Each day, our students, who had come from all over Australia, were greeted by frosty mornings and brilliant sunshine and an environment of creativity and inspiration. Students enjoyed daily talks by tutors, welcome drinks and a final night disco which capped off the week. Stunning works were produced in all workshops.

The next Winter School is scheduled for Monday 8 - Friday 12 July 2019. Courses offered will be advised in January 2019.
