CENTRAL LONDON ART CLASSES  FOR KIDS / CHILDREN & TEENS

 


 

Our kids and children art courses are among the leading drawing and painting art classes in London.  The art classes have been designed by our expert art tutors with educational backgrounds from the most prestigious institutions in the world such as the Royal Academy in London, the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and Athens Academy of Art in Greece. They are structured so that we can guarantee personalised and individual tuition providing the highest standards in fine art training. The small groups (maximum of 10 students per art class) allow us to dedicate the necessary time that is needed for the development of each student.

We understand young students need to express themselves through drawing and painting and our courses are designed to provide them with tuition that can sustain their creative approach with the world.

  • We teach students how to handle different media with structured approaches that explore the technical aspects of drawing skills first followed by painting media such as oil, acrylic, and watercolours.
  • Students will explore the technical and theoretical aspects of different subject matter such as still life, landscape, and portraiture. This allows students to refine their observational skills.
  • This course also provides students with professional support with and tuition for building a body of work that can further their portfolios for applications in higher education studies.
  • We provide students with sustained, structured tuition which we tailor to the needs of each student.
  • We also organise educational art workshops at leading art museums and public galleries in London. This will help your kids develop historical knowledge about art as well as refine their aesthetic appreciation.
  • We arrange en plein air landscape workshops in locations such as Kew Gardens, Regent's Park, Hampstead Heath, and many more to provide stimulation environments where to train our students.


Suitability

  • Our tutors have extensive experience in providing support for students that require tuition for their school projects, GCSE art, A-levels, and foundations degrees including projects for scholarships and competitions.
  • Our children, kids, and teen classes are suitable for students from 7 to 18 years old.
  • Our individual, bespoke approach to teaching is what distinguishes us from other institutions. Through direct learning and engagement, we are able to provide effective tuition that enhances the student’s development and engagement with the arts from a young age.

How Are the Kids and Teens Art Courses Structured?

Our children and teen art courses are based on individual tuition with a maximum of 10 students per art class. Students will practice with different subjects and we will personalise their study plan for their course depending on their needs. Therefore, our tutors will closely work with each student, providing them with step by step guidance. 

You will have an online account to book any of our weekday and weekend art lessons for your kid via our website. Bookings will allow the tutors to know that your kid is coming and arrange the suitable subjects according to the feedback our tutors have about the student's progress. In fact, your account will also be used by our tutors to leave feedback about your kid's development which is shared with all the other teachers. This information allows tutors from different timeslots to be briefed on our students' progress, including what each student did in the previous lessons, and what they should do in the upcoming ones. This means that we can always provide your kids with structured and sustained tuition throughout the whole art course.

As all our art tutors are briefed on your kid's progress, the time slots you book each week do not need to be on the same days and with the same art tutors. Therefore, you can choose your own timetable as each lesson is personalised, allowing you to select any of the available time slots for your art course. As we understand that many parents have busy schedules, our art courses are the only ones in London that let you shape your own timetable.

If you have enrolled your kid for a particular art course, our tutors will cover all the necessary technical skills and guidelines that they should practice (see the tables below for each course). We encourage students to attend art lessons with different tutors as well. Many of them have different approaches to something your kid may have to learn, therefore enriching the student's views on how to approach a subject or a technique.

Safety and Protection

The safety and security of your child is our utmost priority. We always ensure that protective measures are in place so that you can rest your mind knowing that your child is in a safe place. 

  • Our tutors are all DBS checked, and two staff members are always present and available in case extra support is needed while a tutor is teaching.
  • Our CCTV cameras cover every corner of the studio, providing you with extra eyes that will look after your kid's safety.
  • Our centre is located in a safe area on Gray' Inn Road next to Chancery Lane underground station and right in the heart of London.

Please note that for kids under 16 years old, you will need to create an account and book the lessons on their behalf as per GDPR laws.
