Student Information

Student Amenities
The Willoughby Arts Centre provides professionally equipped studio space and some essential equipment for classes. There are three large painting and drawing studios, as well as ceramics, printmaking, jewellery and sculpture studios. Students are expected to provide their own art materials and consumables.

Please bring your own mug, coffee and tea bags. In order to reduce our own costs and in an effort to be eco-friendly, we ask that you please bring your own cup. There are cafes nearby but you may prefer to bring your own food. We have a fridge and microwave for you to use and a sunny courtyard with seating. It is our policy that no food or drink is to be made in the studios or consumed near Work Health & Safety sensitive materials.

Work Health & Safety
Covered shoes must be worn in all studios. No open-toed footwear is allowed in studios. The Willoughby Arts Centre, in compliance with the NSW Work Health & Safety Act, is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for its employees, teachers, students, hirers and visitors. To meet its obligations the WAC has an induction program to provide students with a knowledge of WH&S procedures at the WAC.

Street parking is limited. We ask that you are at all times considerate of others, both students and our neighbours, when parking near the WAC. Some areas can accommodate two small cars, please try and park accordingly. The Loading Bay on Hollywood Crescent is a NO PARKING ZONE. It is a 5 Minute drop-off area only. Emergency vehicle access must be available at all times, both day and evening, at the loading bay.

Public Transport
Buses to and from Chatswood and the city stop on the corner of Penshurst & Laurel Streets, 100 metres from the centre.

Over three hundred library books are available to students during class for reference. Members have borrowing rights to the library.
