Unleash your creativity, break free from the mundane, and step into the vibrant world of Studio 48 – Edinburgh’s haven for those seeking a different kind of artistic experience.

At Studio 48,

we believe that art is more than just paint on canvas;

it’s an escape, an exploration, and a celebration of individuality. Say goodbye to conventional art classes and immerse yourself in our alternative haven curated by Sally-Ann Johns, where both kids and adults are invited to embrace their artistic journey with open arms.

Studio 48 is more than a studio; it’s a community where you can connect, collaborate, and grow together. Our approach is rooted in fostering a sense of belonging and encouraging you to express yourself authentically.

Create for kids

Studio 48 is not your average art studio for kids. It’s a playground of colors, a canvas for imagination, and a place where little artists can let their creativity run wild. From unforgettable art birthday parties to engaging children’s classes, we make every moment a brushstroke in their artistic adventure.

Create for adults

For those seeking an escape from the routine 9-5 existence, Studio 48 offers a range of adult classes that redefine the art of relaxation. Break free from creative blocks, experiment with new techniques, and join a community of like-minded individuals in our alternative art sessions. Rediscover the joy of expression and let your imagination soar.

Nurturing creativity in a positive atmosphere

At Studio 48, we believe in fostering a positive and supportive atmosphere that not only nurtures artistic talent but also builds confidence in each student. In my classes, we go beyond the canvas, delving into the rich tapestry of art history and learning to appraise each other’s work effectively. What sets us apart is our unique approach to critique – no negative criticisms allowed. Instead, we hold up our pieces and share positive comments, creating an environment where every student feels encouraged to showcase their work.

Creativity over competition

We find immense joy in witnessing the transformation of our students – from hesitant creators to confident individuals eager to share their artistic expressions. Studio 48 is more than an art studio; it’s a haven where positivity fuels creativity, and every student is encouraged to flourish.

Kind Words

Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. Can't recommend Studio 48 highly enough. My twin girls (aged 10) have been going for several years now and I can't imagine them not going! Sally is very talented and really great with the kids. It's so nice for them to have something every week which is fun and interesting, where they are supported and challenged - you never get the impression that they are told what to do (or what not to do) but rather inspired and encouraged.

My daughter had her 9th Birthday party at Studio 48 painting cute animals on canvas. Sally took good care of the girls from the moment they entered the studio and supported them throughout the activities. The place is very spacious, bright, beautifully decorated with lights and art work. The girls could also ask for their favourite songs to be played while they were painting. The parents were very impressed with the place and each girl took a beautiful canvas back home. Sally made us feel relaxed during the party. Thank you for making our daughter's birthday special 🙂

Sally is an excellent teacher with kids. She is very patient and very good in cultivating each child's unique potential. The studio offers a very good learning environment with different kinds of materials for different ages of children. My daughter has learned and improved her drawing and painting skills, as well as how to apply different mediums in her art works. She has greatly enjoyed her art classes with Sally. Thank you very much Sally for giving her such a wonderful experience in learning about art!

My daughter has been attending classes with Sally-Ann since 2020 and absolutely loves them. They've been one of the highlights of her week for the last 3 years as she finds them unfailingly fun, and is usually so engrossed that I have difficulty getting her to leave class at the end. Sally is fantastic with the kids and always has something new and interesting for them to do. I highly recommend these classes for any kids that are interested in or enjoy creative activities.
