Established in 1881, the Queensland College of Art is one of Australia's longest-running art and design colleges.
We offer the widest range of visual art programs in Australia, including the Griffith Film School, which moved into new purpose-built premises at South Bank in March 2007.
The College traces its origin to a drawing class at the Brisbane School of Arts, which was attended by 22 students.
We celebrated our 125th anniversary in 2006 and today we are a community of around 1200 artists, designers, animators, photographers, film-makers across the South Bank and Gold Coast Griffith University campuses.
Over the years we have brought together some of the finest practitioners and academics in the areas of visual arts, design, Indigenous art and the moving image, and produced some of Australia's leading visual artists and designers who have helped to shape the art and design culture of Queensland and beyond.
