Our final graduation ceremony in December 2020 saw 8 graduates join the 60 previous alumni of Spier Arts Academy.
Spier Arts Academy offered employment-based training in professional Mosaic and Ceramic as art medium. We administered a full-time 3-year apprenticeship that offered tuition in drawing, art history, an accredited business curriculum and applied practical experience in mosaic and ceramic making.
A vibrant learning environment that explored these art forms, the Academy developed the practical and technical expertise and creative spirit of all learners. The programme was designed to create a local industry of skilled artisans.
Spier Arts Trust continues with the legacy of the Academy, finding opportunities for our journeymen to specialise in collaborative and experimental work with fine artists, designers and architects in the conceptualising, manufacture and installation of large-scale contemporary artworks in these exciting mediums.
