Art Est. a dynamic visual arts hub in Sydney

Art Est. Art School and Gallery is Sydney’s dynamic creative hub for the visual arts. Located in a spacious, light-filled warehouse in inner west Leichhardt at the artistic heart of Sydney, Art Est. is an inspiring art space with four dedicated teaching studios, artists studios and an art gallery.



Weekend workshops and master classes all year

If you prefer to immerse yourself for a day rather than attend a weekly class, why not join one of our many weekend workshops? Held mostly on a Sunday, the workshops and master classes cover a range of subject and media. Monthly workshops are held in acrylics with either Larissa Blake or Paul McCarthy, and watercolours with Jane Blundell or Susie Murphie. New workshops added regularly, so check back in from time to time to see what's new on the program.
