Art classes for everyone in Sydney’s Inner West

Art Est. is Sydney’s leading independent art school, offering 8-week art courses and workshops for adults, teens and children. It is a space where people of all ages and abilities can discover their artistic potential in a professional studio environment with practising artists.

This term all of our classes are conducted online via zoom.

Generally our art classes for adults are available weekdays, evenings and Saturday mornings. We also have a great range of one-day and two-day workshops available, a perfect option for visitors to Sydney looking for things to do, or for someone who doesn’t have time to commit to a term class.

Kids and Teens can build their creative skills at our after school and Saturday term classes as well as our school holiday workshops, a two-week workshop prorgam that runs in each holiday period throughout the year.
