Founded in 2010, The Art Academy is Horsham's only independent art school and studio that caters for all abilities and teaches to the individual.


At the Academy, we are not course driven, we are expression driven. We believe that the creative journey should be in the hands of the individual and we are here to provide the space, the tools, the guidance and support. We can help anybody learn to paint and draw from age 6 and above.

We are proud to offer an inclusive and immersive creative experience. Our students range in both age and ability with all levels of experience catered for. Our time together is focused on fun, freedom and exploration.


We believe understanding emotion is just as important as understanding how to apply paint to canvas.
