Art Scholarships

MESHA is proud to provide opportunities for Australian military members and emergency service personnel to extend and enhance their creative skills through an annual Arts Scholarship program. The eight scholarships awarded each year enable the recipients to undertake a 10-week short course of their choice (including materials) at the Adelaide Central School of Art, located at Glenside.

Our scholarships aim to support participants in learning new skills or improving current techniques so that they can continue to enhance their wellbeing through their art practice.

Adelaide Central School of Art’s studio-based short courses are designed for participants of all levels – from beginners learning the basics through to practicing artists undertaking professional development or refreshing their skills.
