Dear teacher or current student at the Julian Ashton Art School,
The School is very concerned regarding the threat posed by Coronavirus (COVID-19) to all at the School and the community generally. The School has taken, and will continue to take, all precautionary measures, as recommended, mandated and directed by both the NSW Government and the Federal Government regarding Covid-19. We continue to monitor advice from the NSW Government and the other authorities daily. In an overabundance of caution for the interests of students and staff we have made the following decision:
In consideration of the above, it has been decided to close the school term classes from Thursday March 19th 2020, until further notice. This means that the last classes before closure will be held on Wednesday Evening the 18th of March 2020.
This decision will be reviewed from time to time and we will keep you informed as the situation evolves.
Congratulations to alumnus Paul Newton – over 2660 entries and only 23 finalists in the Portrait Society of America 2020, a fantastic achievement and well deserved.
Congratulations also to alumna Paulina Kazarinov who received the award of excellence in the New Jersey Livingston Art Association.
