COVID-19 Measures

Important information regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

We have a COVID-19 Safety Plan and are committed to keeping you safe.

UPDATE: 31 May 2021

We continue to practice covid-safe measures at Art Est for everyone's safety and wellbeing and ask that you:

  • sign-in with our QR code upon arrival.
  • use our free hand sanitiser on the front desk upon arrival and observe good hygiene practice.

Please do not attend a class at Art Est if you:

  • live in or have visited any of the declared hotspots as per NSW Health guidelines.
  • "Please view the current list of hotspots here ":https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/covid-19/Pages/case-locations-and-alerts.aspx
  • been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19: (coronavirus) in the last 14 days
  • returned from overseas in the last 14 days
  • feel unwell and have even the mildest symptoms such as tiredness, runny nose or a sore throat. (You should also have a conversation with the people you are spending time with to ensure they do not have symptoms.)

Mandatory QR Check-in

Please note that is compulsory for all of our students, parents, casual visitors, tutors and staff to check in to Art Est. using the Service NSW QR Code. You will need to have the Service NSW app on your smart phone or check in as a visitor via the same QR code.

You can download the app here:https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/campaign/service-nsw-mobile-app

There is a QR Code at the entrance to both Ceramics and the Main Gallery.

Please follow these steps each time you come:

  1. Make sure you've download the app the first time (as above)
  2. Scan the QR code on arrival at Art Est.
  3. Check out when you leave

If you cannot access the QR Code on your phone, please see a staff member on arrival.

Please note how important this is for everyone to comply. Businesses that don’t follow the COVID-19 safety rules risk serious penalties and possible closure under the Public Health Order. I know you don't want this to happen to Art Est. either.

Cancellation Policy

Please read our "Conditions of enrolment":/terms-conditions for our cancellation policy. Special consideration will be given to anyone directly impacted by COVID-19 who is unable to attend due to a Government directive to isolate.

If you are required to isolate and get tested, please notify Art Est and simply forward your Covid test to our mobile (0491203545). We will credit you the cost of your session back into your account for future use.

The Future

As news about the Coronavirus continues to develop, the health, safety and well-being of everyone at Art Est Art School is a priority. We are actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and following the Australian and NSW Government updates to help mitigate the risk of this virus being spread to our community.

We can’t predict how this pandemic will continue to play out, and everyone here at Art Est. is grateful for your support and understanding.

Art Est is, and will continue to be, a Covid-Safe venue and we operate our classes in line with the current NSW Government guidelines.

If you have any questions regarding this, feel free to give us a call on 9564 1519.

As Picasso said, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of every day life” – if only it could wash away this dreadful coronavirus.
