The Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation is a registered charity inspiring a generation of young people by offering them a gateway to the arts. By funding after and out of school classes in primary and secondary state schools in England, the Foundation provides children with the inspiration and tools to develop lifelong artistic passions.

We are temporarily based at LSoM at Ludlow Basement, Lismore Circus, Gospel Oak , NW5 4SF  sharing a space in the artists studios , whilst we are here we can continue to continue our work with our young people but classes are limited to spaces but we are still able to support young people in the arts whilst fundraising for our new gallery space to open up more spaces for more young people.


We are pleased to be able to offer the following courses FREE and continue to support our young people in Camden. We must ensure that we follow up on our courses by giving our young people access to the arts projects that we deliver to encourage and inspire our future generation!

Please take note of age groups according to course/workshops as this is important when enrolling your child/young person. Our courses/workshops are designed to inspire individuals who want to learn the incredibly exciting courses that we offer and therefore we design them accordingly!
