About the Friends of the National Art School

 

Friends of the National Art School Inc. was founded in 1994 to promote the continuation of the unique model of art education taught at the National Art School.

Friends provides invaluable support to the students, staff and graduates of the National Art School, while also involving the broader community in the educational, historical and cultural pursuits of this important sector of the visual arts.
