Exhibition | Sandra Winkworth At Home
Winner of the 2013 GreenWay Art Prize, Sandra Winkworth embraces the overlooked and the ephemeral. In her current exhibition in the Art Est. Gallery, she reveals fragility and diversity, celebrating silly, open-ended, non-polished-ness in works. This is an installation about "small stuff" with a mix of prints, drawings, watercolours and book art. On show until 25 October.

Weekend Workshops and Masterclasses
Take time out on the weekend to delve into art. Our one and two day workshops focus on particular mediums such as drawing, painting, etching or mixed media. In our masterclasses you can learn from award winning artists Cherry Hood, Kerrie Lester or Andrew Antoniou, or join a regular workshop in watercolours with Susie Murphie or acrylics with Paul McCarthy.
Gift certificates and other arty ideas
Art Est. Art School has the most creative present you can give for any occasion. Why not buy a gift certificate for a friend or relative so they can discover their artistic potential? Certificates can be purchased for any amount, a particular art class or art workshop, or for the value of the art class or workshop of your choice. Other Art Est. gifts include art sets, aprons, and more.
Artrageous corporate art events
An art workshop is an inspiring, fun and creative way to teambuild with your colleagues. With a range of art activities to choose from, our corporate packages provide team building, creative thinking and your very own masterpieces to keep.
Art parties for all ages and occasions
We've got some great art party ideas — for all events and occasions — to get everyone involved and creating their own masterpieces at our inspiring warehouse studio.
Birthday Art Parties cater for kids of all ages and interests. Adults might like to try a Life Drawing Party for a cheeky Girl's Night Out, or we can design a fun painting workshop for any celebration.
And if you found last year's work Christmas Party uninspiring, why not do something creative instead this year? We can host groups of up to 40 and everyone gets to be hands on and create their own artwork in a fun catered art party!
Contact us now to discuss how we can design a unique art event that everyone will enjoy.
