9 July 2021 – New Art Est Location for Term 3

In 2008, the doors to Art Est were open, a fledgling art school in a rustic warehouse in the back streets of Leichhardt. The vision was to create a space where people of all ages and abilities could discover their artistic potential in a professional studio environment with practising artists.

We have done that, and more. Over the past 13 years, we have employed local artists, offered a platform for new and emerging artists, provided high-quality and accessible tuition, and more importantly, we have become a community.

Sadly, our time in our Lords Road warehouse has come to an end as we have been given notice to vacate. Our last day on-site will be 19 July 2021 – a week after the winter school holidays.

After months of searching, extensive negotiating with landlords and agents, and exploring a huge range of options, we have not been able to find a new permanent home that is the right fit for Art Est. As our hunt continues, we will be running Term 3 in temporary locations and spaces within the Inner West.

It will still be the same Art Est tutors, high-quality tuition, and family-feel that you know and love until we find a more permanent home.

Our Term 3 program will be open in the upcoming weeks, so we do ask for your patience while we finalise these details and we hope to see your familiar faces as you continue your art classes with us.

On behalf of the Art Est team, we deeply appreciate your support over the years, and especially now. We are remaining positive and embracing this exciting new opportunity for change and growth.

There will be more details to follow soon.
