Our Story

Townsville Art Academy is founded by Mere King, a local illustrator and freelance visual artist based here in Townsville. 

Growing up she loved art and the process of creating, but there were no programs in her area for such things. Thats why we are dedicated to bringing a strong after school and holiday program to the young artists of Townsville. 

We are committed to nurturing the artistic minds of tomorrow and strive to ensure that no artist is left behind.



Timeline & Process

After School Programs

Townsville Art Academy offers dedicated after school programs during the Government school term. Students attend once a week for 1 hour and learn the skills, techniques and confidence that they need to thrive as an artist. 

Classes are divided into 3 groups, senior school (ages 13 - 17), junior school (ages 6 - 12) and adults (ages18+). Please ensure you choose the right booking timetable for you or your child's age.
