Seven Hills Art College came about with the relocation, in 1974, of the Technical School of Visual Art as incorporated into the Brisbane Central Technical College in 1898. The College had been established by its Art Master, Godfrey Rivers, a graduate of the Slade School in London and a painter of international repute. In 1970, painter and critic Alan Warren was appointed director and quickly established a dedicated library and a broader curriculum. Under Warren, the curriculum grew to encompass new media such as printmaking, ceramics and gold and silver-smithing. Film and television and later animation were developed from electives to complete courses. The first Diploma of Arts qualification in Queensland was introduced in 1976.
