Didcot Art Room

The Didcot Art Room - Learning and achieving through artThe Art Room

Working in primary and secondary schools, The Art Room helps children and young people re-engage with learning and thrive in life.

With nine joyful, inspiring studios in Oxford, London and Edinburgh, our highly trained practitioners use art as a vehicle for therapeutic work.

While children transform everyday objects - like a chair or lampshade - into a unique piece of art - the subtle therapeutic intervention gives each child an opportunity to explore their identity, feelings and creativity express their emotions, develop their social skills and grow in confidence.

Turning a mundane item into a breathtaking piece of art is also a perfect metaphor for the transformation children experience during their time with The Art Room.

A world where art is used as a therapeutic tool in mainstream education to help thousands of children learn, achieve and thrive.

Our Mission

Working in mainstream education, we help children and young people explore their identity, grow in confidence and develop the social skills they need to engage in learning and thrive in life.

Our History

The charity was established 15 years ago by inspiring pioneer, Dr Juli Beattie OBE. Working with children over many years, she observed how art could transform children's confidence and self-belief.

Our work has real impact, When children join The Art Room, the emotional and behavioural difficulties they are dealing with make it hard for them to cope at school. Most return to the classroom feeling more self-assured, more socially skilled and far better equipped to learn.
