Holiday classes terms & conditions:

  • Cancellations and refunds only allowed one week prior to booking.

  • The classes currently on offer might be unsuitable for some children regardless of their ability and needs due to their technical nature. We do not deliver art classes based on creative play.


Final note from our founder:

Our art school exists to teach students the technical skills I wished I had learned during my education. It's a passion project for me and my team, dedicated to fine art education. I'm proud that we maintain a high percentage of students on concessionary rates. We offer free adult courses for local disadvantaged and retired Hackney residents. Additionally, we provide an annual bursary, covering a year of tuition for a hardworking student whose family can't afford our fees.

We take pride in creating an inclusive, diverse, safe, and friendly environment for all our students. We have a zero-tolerance policy for bullying, discrimination, harassment, and aggression, leading to expulsion. Our organization is committed to being anti-racist.
