ART METRO

ART SCHOOL & CAFE

 


 

 


HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO CREATE SOMETHING ARTISTIC BUT THOUGHT YOU DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH TALENT? 

 


Here at Art Metro, we offer an oasis away from the everyday hustle and bustle, and we believe that anyone can learn the skills required to create fabulous pieces of artwork - no matter how little, or how much, talent they claim to have! 

In addition to our fantastic art tuition, we also have a wonderful cafe, where we are proud to serve some of the best coffee in the north west!  The arty feel flows through from the art studio into the art inspired cafe.  Picture abstractly painted tables, inspiring art on the walls, and the focal point, our amazing coffee cup mural - well worth a look!


Come and see for yourself how hundreds of people have unlocked their artist within, and produced extraordinary art or visit our FaceBook page to see some of our artists in action!

Testimonials

I’ve now won 12 art awards.  Nothing is more beautiful than the sound of people clapping for me, and my award winning art work.  Thank you Grace for making this possible for me.

Art Metro art classes have changed my life.  I have dabbled with oil paints for 30 years and no one had ever taught me the skills in order to achieve success.  The first art class produced a piece pleasing enough to be proudly placed on the wall at home.  Thank you.
