Bienarté is a vibrant and welcoming boutique art school founded by Master Artist Marcel Desbiens in 2005.
Our mission is to help people discover their artistic potential by supporting them to develop techniques in various art forms, starting with the absolute basics and working up to advanced study in all mediums.
We offer the opportunity to try something new, or to extend and expand your skills, in a friendly, relaxed and supportive environment. And if you get inspired, we have everything you need to take you on the journey from absolute beginner to professional artist!
Housed in a large, light-filled warehouse in Albion, containing purpose-built air-conditioned art studios, Bienarté offers a wide range of courses and workshops across a variety of mediums including oil, acrylic, watercolour, drawing, charcoal and pastel, at a range of levels from absolute beginners through to those seeking to refine and extend their practice. We also offer seminars and workshops in art history and the business and marketing skills needed to work as a professional artist.
Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and age groups, and we are very proud to be able to offer meaningful workshops to NDIS applicants. Our students benefit from the expertise of more than 50 teachers, all of whom are award-winning, practising artists from Brisbane, interstate or overseas. And we keep our classes small so that all students benefit from personal attention and support. No wonder that our students travel from all over Australia to attend classes and workshops with us!
