LCAD offers an intimate setting to explore your creativity. Our studio based facilities have been designed to maximise one on one tutoring while providing creative flexibility for students. Our staff deliver a specialised combination of theory and practical skills that encourage our students to be creative, innovative and to think independently. Our studio warehouse provides a combination of open, collaborative spaces and discrete, private spaces in order for students to tailor their learning experience.

Studio Spaces

All Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts students are given permanent, individual studio spaces to work in for the duration of their studies. Located on our first floor, each space is generously equiped with a range of materials and facilities that allow students to focus on the development of their oeuvre.

Gallery

The central gallery space at LCAD provides students with the ideal environment to present and discuss their work to teaching staff and peers. Designed to simulate a real world gallery, the generous space allows students to develop innovative modes of presentation, deliver floor talks and lectures and learn about then relationships between the social, political and architectural contexts surrounding their work. Follow LCAD on social media to be kept up to date with upcoming exhibitions and presentations.

Workshop

Constantly updated, the LCAD workshop presents a range of tools and raw materials to support a students development of specific skills and experiment with different art-making modes in order to refine their creative path.

Technology

As the beating heart of LCAD, our computer labs and photography studios provide our students with the tools to enhance their creative practice while understanding the latest developments in software and image making.
