Art Is for Everyone

Many people are put off by the idea of art because they think it’s something you have to have a deep knowledge about. At Art Est Art School and Gallery, the aim is to show you that art should be about exploring your creative side and having fun, while allowing you to develop a variety of important art and life skills at the same time.

In a recent article by Bupa Life Insurance, Express Yourself with These Creative Courses, we were thrilled to be described as a ‘one-stop-shop to sharpen any visual art skills.’ We have courses available in a variety of drawing, painting and etching techniques.

If you have a hidden creative passion you’ve always wanted to explore, then art can be the ideal outlet, no matter what your age or level of ability. At Art Est, courses are available for children, teens and adults of all abilities, allowing you to open your creative side up and have fun discovering what you’re capable of. You’re likely to surprise yourself!

Improving your art skills can open up a world of possibilities. You can exhibit your work in art galleries, including the exhibitions held at Art Est, or create beautiful original works for your family and friends. In addition, art has been shown to improve mental and emotional skills including concentration, observation, problem solving and communication.
