Congratulations to Alumni Andrew Bonneau, here receiving the William Fletcher Foundation Rome Residency award from the patron Shane Simpson AM. He’ll be spending three months as an artist in residence at the British School at Rome. Chris Browne, a Julian Ashton Instructor, won the award in 2017.
Congratulations to Julian Ashton Art School Alumni!
What an honour to have so many Alumni as successful semi finalists in the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize.
“Currently with an annual first prize of one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000), the Prize is an important part of Australia’s Arts calendar. The Prize is acquisitive and the winning portrait immediately becomes the property of the Moran Arts Foundation, to be exhibited permanently as part of the Moran Arts Foundation Collection.” -Doug Moran website
“ARC is pleased to welcome the Julian Ashton Art School as a new ARC ApprovedSM Atelier!
The Julian Ashton Art School was founded by Julian Rossi Ashton in 1890 and is Australia’s oldest continuous Fine Art School.
The school’s core philosophy is to encourage fine drawing and sound practice in the craft of painting. Students may gain basic skills and pursue a personal course to the very highest level of technical prowess without having to engage with current theories about the nature of art.”
