Art School

 Ages 5 to 8 years


This is the group for our youngest creative minds. Here,we offer age appropriate Art experiences that dip and skim playfully through the surface of the fundamentals of Drawing and Painting, offering very tasty and varied nibbles. Their imagination is kept ignited and there is nothing more real and beautiful for us! Our endeavour is to just help them express it in a way they can be proud of. This class nurtures their love for art, makes real life connections and prepares them for further exploration that comes next.


 Fee: £10 X No of weeks

(Weeks per term: Autumn -14, Spring-11 and Summer-11) 

(Sessions are 1 hour long and fee includes all materials apart from the drawing book.

Ages 5yrs+

 Ages 8- 12years and 12- 16 years

This is the group for our Explorers. We dive deeper and scout all through and around the subject, viewing it from various perspectives. Our weekly art trails lead them through new subjects and mediums, making valuable connections to their own other interests outside the class. This class empowers them with a deeper and skillful understanding of the fundamentals of the subject.

The 12-16 years group are offered more lessons on observational drawings along with the regular curriculum for the younger groups. This enables older children  who are unable to commit to the 2.5 hrs long 12yrs+ group to continue to enjoy and grow through their art journey.


 Fee: £15 X No of weeks

(Weeks per term: Autumn -14, Spring-11 and Summer-11) 

(Sessions are 1.5 hour long and fee includes all materials apart from the drawing book.

Ages 12 years + Maidenhead

This group is an opportunity for the students to learn and grow with guest Artists and spend concentrated  time on one subject.  Our subjects will range from Life Drawing, Still life, Cartooning, Illustration and mediums range from Oil paints, Charcoal to Egg Tempera.

These classes are open by invitation only to existing Artspiration 10 yrs+ students,   (based on teacher referral and merit)

The classes are open to all other 12yrs plus  however, we do expect children to have basic skills and understanding of drawing and painting and we will request images of your child's art work which should include at least 3 works from observation. The images will just help us to get an idea of your child's strengths and weakness.

Details of our  Guest artists can be found here


Would suit perfectly if your child is passionate about Art in general and also if they are currently doing their GCSE , Arts Award or applying for scholarships.

Small Groups

Small groups:  This program works well if you are looking for 121 lessons.  Our small groups provide a greater opportunity for individual guidance and targeted feedback. Children can join existing small group classes or we can start a new one if you have a group or bubble you prefer to work within, and you know would be interested in joining you.


Most of our Art school lessons are covered but emphasis is more on observational drawing in these groups. The curriculum is more flexible to allow for groups to work on projects of their choice / competition entries /develop portfolios etc.

Teachers can assign optional tasks to work at home and provide feedback on it at/during  the class. 


Fee: varies as per class size, please contact us for details.

Our Program Art Peek is tailored towards the after school clubs that we run in local schools exclusively for the school's children.  Art Peek gives children a lovely, concise art learning experience and touches on the different elements of our full curriculum. Our After School Club Leaders deliver this program in our local schools.


'Art Peek ' is a wonderful opportunity for Year 1 to Year 6 children to experience various art forms, mediums, artists and skills. 


Each term, Art Peek introduces children to various mediums like water colours, Soft pastels, Oil Pastels, Charcoal,Acrylic paints , Print Making etc. Children will also be introduced to specialized Art and Crafts like Mosaics, Plaster casting, Mod roc Modelling,. and gain insight into the works and life of one Master Artist and then create their own art inspired by their works. 

If you are a parent or teacher and think your school would benefit from an Art Peek Art Club, please contact us on and we would be delighted to help.

We also support and encourage children to apply for the  'Discover Arts Award' which is offered by the Trinity College of London for an additional fee as we are also advisers to Arts Award and our Art peek program covers the requirement for the award.
