Art Classes and Bespoke Workshops 

The Kidogo Art Institute is an independent art school dedicated to providing students with a solid foundation in the visual arts. Our programs are designed to prepare students for careers as professional artists or designers. We are a Registered Training Organisation offering accredited Cert III and Cert IV programs in Art and Design as well as general art courses for both adults and children, as well as bespoke workshops.

At Kidogo, our classes are small, but our ideas are big. As a Kidogo student, you’ll never get lost in the crowd, but will feel yourself supported and encouraged every step of the way.
