Fancy learning something new & having fun through ART? 
We are here to bring a bit of Art History into your life & to get you inspired.

Space to create and learn a little about Art History along the way.

Jessica has been dreaming of doing this for a long time and now she can! 

So join her for an art class with a difference, different mediums, different artists, different each time. Classes are great for  beginners or more advanced artists. Learn something new, create something inspired by what you have learnt and go home with a smile on your face (hopefully), your creation and feeling inspired to create more.

For booking and info

Ad Hoc Yoga and Art restorative sessions based in Felbridge, Surrey 
with Yoga Nature Warriors

Ad hoc classes at Leonardslee Gardens, Lower Beeding  book directly through Leonardslees Gardens 

YOU can book a private party at your home or a venue or have Art Styles Academy come to your business for a Wellbeing  Team Social. These workshops are great for the wholesome calm part of Hen Parties and get togethers with friends for Mindful Arty Mornings or Evenings. 

We would love to bring a bit of Art History knowledge, and creativity to your guests to feel inspired and confident about their creations. So many people say 'Oh I won't be good at that, I'm not arty....well they have the best time' and their confidence grows. 

There is no right or wrong in art, it's about the way it makes you feel creating it. 

Classes are for ALL and all abilities.

I would highly recommend to anyone with a love of art (all abilities welcome to attend!)"

Jessica, they loved your Draw day yesterday! They loved the variety of activities. Leo said he liked "drawing with swords" best (wow!), and Josh liked doing light and shade on a sphere best. Thank you for giving them a great day of art!
