Art Classes

Art Classes Group studio is based in the Observatory Shopping Centre Slough and is an Arts Award Centre.

We provide art classes for children aged 4+ and professional art classes for children 6+. We also offer academic guidance for teens/kids with their GCSE, Art A-level and art scholarship applications, and art classes for adults and groups. We support home-schooled and SEN students.

Each course is designed for different levels. Participants are introduced to the main concept and techniques of drawing like shading, charcoal, oil and soft pastels, pen and ink and painting like watercolours, acrylics, oils, mixed media.

We organise an art exhibition every year and participants have the chance to exhibit and sell their works and to receive Arts Award qualification after completing their art course.

Our tutors are all DBS checked, and the lead tutor is the award-winning artist Marinela Caldarus.
