Espoo School of Art is an art school for children and youth from 5 years to 20 years of age. It offers a wide range of systematically progressing studies in visual arts. We implement the national curriculum for the comprehensive course in visual arts and the Act on basic art education.

The school was founded in 1979, and has some 1200 students today. The teachers are art educators, working artists, industrial designers, architects and photographers. The school is run by a registered association and has several studios in different parts of Espoo. Classes are both in Finnish and Swedish.

It makes a solid base for further art studies. The emphasis is on creative work in the studio. All the material and equipment is included in the student fee.
