We teach art to children aged between 6 and 16 and firmly believe that every pupil who comes through our studio door  is capable of exceeding their own, artistic expectations. Our aim is unite young artists through our unique and inspirational courses and workshops operating after school, in the evenings, on Saturdays and throughout the school holidays. Whether you are the parent of a prodigal 6 year old, a teenager requiring a little inspiration with their GCSE coursework or the next Damian Hirst needing guidance with their scholarship portfolio; Artroom will have a dynamic course for your child to attend.

What do we do?

Since our launch in November 2008, more than 5000 different children who attend over 80 separate schools have created beautiful pieces of art in our studio. We believe it is of fundamental importance that our students are given the opportunity to meet working artists, so we organise regular visits from notable practitioners. Such events play a vital role in the development of a child’s lifelong passion for art. We’ve had guest speakers including the legendary Ralph Steadman, Street Artist Charlie Edwards AKA; ‘Pure Evil’, author and illustrator Chris Riddell and the ‘boy who bit Picasso’; Anthony Penrose. Gilbert and George have sponsosred us and we’ve got a visit from Gruffalo creator Axel Scheffler planned for the Autumn. Banksy – yes – BANKSY was ‘blown away’ by our pupil’s work. How is that for inspirational.

How do we do it?

Artroom Brighton employs teaching strategies and techniques that have been successfully developed and implemented in the public and private sector of education and teachers hold P.G.C.E.’s. We work closely with a plethora of schools and have forged strong relationships with both Headteachers and Art Directors alike.

Head Teacher, Brighton & Hove High School for girls Juniors

Teachers will frequently inform us that they’re aware of the children who attend Artroom by the standard of their work, their knowledge of art and confidence with materials. We will guide and nurture every pupil who enrols on a course and enable them to achieve artistic results that they never thought possible. Thats why pupils remain on our courses, year after year.

Why Artroom?

You won’t find another art class where children will be creating a Minecraft Mosaic one day and a Fauvist style portrait the next. You won’t find another art class where pupils get to use real gold leaf, acrylic paints, coffee, vintage magazines, rust, Indian inks, bleach, gouache and Victorain photographs. You won’t find another art class that employs the artistic systems of some of the most cutting edge artists working today.  We’ll frequently source an artist on Instagram or Twitter, work in their style, send them the pupil’s work and get almost instant feedback. Its hugely rewarding for students. Our portfolio preparation guidance has enabled over 50 young people gain scholarships to leading independent schools and for pupils who stay with us until Year 11 – their efforts are frequently rewarded on results day with the coveted A*. All of our teaching is carefully structured to create a sense of confidence, early in a project – with children of all abilities. This confidence then propells the pupil forward at warp speed into an artistic space they never felt possible. You’ll never hear them say; ‘I can’t do it’ or ‘I’m rubbish at art’ ever again. Thats a promise. We’ve been featured in The Times, The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph and our younger pupils were the subject of Ant and Dec’s Christmas art challenge.

What is our vision?

We truly and firmly believe that art has the power to transform the lives of young people – we’ve seen it happen many, many times. In a climate where art’s demotion from a core subject in every child’s education to a smattering of token options that children dip in and out, it’s no wonder that more and more parents are choosing to send their children to our classes. Unlock YOUR child’s creative potential and book them in for a course at our studios.
