Discover your inner artist and learn something new. Join us in our Amersham studio.

ARTLIFE Studio is an independent art school located in Buckinghamshire and was set up with the aim of nurturing the natural creativity of children and young people across all disciplines of Art and Design.

With over 27 years of experience working and teaching in the Creative sectors and having held the post of Principal Tutor at one of London’s leading Art and Design Universities, founder Sarah Thomas realised the lack of creativity available to children and young people in mainstream education and the benefits gained if they are nurtured from an early age.

The studio offers a true art education with a difference. Students are encouraged to come and explore how to push their creative boundaries through intimate fun structured classes that educate and stimulate key areas of creative ability in children and adults aged 4 years and above. For us it is the process, not the end result, that is fundamental to the understanding of experiencing what it is to produce “Art”.

Since its conception 6 years ago Artlife Studio has grown rapidly to become one of the most personal and creative independent art schools in the country with a beautiful studio nestled in 26 acres of stunning Buckinghamshire countryside.

Artlife uses workshops in small class sizes as a starting point to encourage children to explore all disciplines of painting, printing, sculpture and drawing in a hands-on fun way with insights into some individual artists. Fine art techniques are at the foundation of our teaching, as this enables the student to build confidence and grow as an artist. Pupils are encouraged to express themselves and to take risks in creating art; through this, they develop a sense of self, innovation and resilience; all transferable skills. This has enabled children of all ages to reach their creative potential at whatever level.

Artlife Studio also runs its own Scholarship and GCSE support programmes and we are proud to have worked with several of our students who have successfully gained art scholarships at some of the best schools in the country. We have recently extended our courses to adults and now run exciting classes exploring all aspects of painting drawing and art history.
