We offer a 3 year full time subsidised study programme that includes drawing, critical studies, visual literacy and printmaking. We also provide a part time course that focuses on printmaking.
In 2016 we introduced a fourth year senior and work placement programme. With the support of the Mary Slack and Daughters Foundation and Chikhululu Investments (social investment Branch of RMB), we successfully formalised and implemented a Senior Internship programme as a pilot in 2016. The programme created learning opportunities through workplace training and experiential learning for each graduate artist in one or more units at APS. Through private patron and corporate partnerships a series of seminars were run every Thursday to equip students with the necessary skills and knowledge in areas including law, business and communications which enhanced and increased their understanding of professional practice.
APS subsidises approximately 80 young artists to attend classes and have access to printing their work in the studio. We constantly seek scholarship funding through corporate social investment and personal patronage through the Sponsorship Programme. More About the programme here.
