History

The South Australian School of Art was first established in 1856 - the oldest of UniSA's antecedent institutions.

The school went through a number of name changes over the years:

  • 1861: South Australian School of Design
  • 1881: the School split into the School of Design and the School of Painting
  • 1892: the two Schools merged into the School of Design and Painting
  • 1894: School of Design, Painting and Technical Art
  • 1909: Adelaide School of Art
  • 1916: South Australian School of Arts and Crafts
  • 1958: South Australian School of Art

In 1963, the School moved from the Exhibition Building (North Terrace, Adelaide) to new premises in Stanley Street, North Adelaide.

In 1973, the South Australian School of Art merged with Western Teachers College to form Torrens College of Advanced Education.
