Tresillian is a vibrant community arts centre that provides recreational courses and activities for adult students.

With four term programs each year, there is a wide variety of courses on offer including arts, languages, handicrafts and wellbeing. A quarterly school holiday program for children and youth provides an opportunity to learn new skills in a fun and creative atmosphere. In 2021, we also have a range of after school art classes, for children aged 5 -17 years. 


Tresillian has a regular exhibition schedule with a feature artist showing each month. We begin 2021 with PAWA’s Group exhibition ‘Pressing Matters’, in which printmakers reflect on contemporary matters, and use various printmaking techniques. Following this, Angela Davis’ solo exhibition ’North to South 2021’, in March, is a series of landscape paintings inspired by travels in remote WA. 


We look forward to welcoming you all in 2021- a new year to learn and grow at Tresillian Arts Centre.

What is Good and Bad Art?
In this wide-ranging overview, Emeritus Professor Richard Read explores the idea that ‘bad’ works of art reveal the problem that ‘successful’ works of art conceal and that this effect of ‘failure’ has therefore been an essential quality of truly experimental art, especially over the last century.
