Art classes for everyone

Art Est. is Sydney’s leading independent art school, offering art classes for kids, teens and adults.

We believe people of all ages and abilities can discover their artistic potential in a relaxed and nurturing environment.

Our classes are run by practising and award-winning Australian artists. We offer term courses for week-on-week learning, a year-round workshop program for adults and a school holiday workshop program for kids and teens.

Art Est is based in Leichhardt, where we have been operating for over 14 years and created a community of local creatives. We have recently opened the doors to our newly refurbished venue which has transformed Art Est into a multi-venue art space and the largest independent art school in Sydney.
