Artpod designs & delivers visual arts kits , workshops & events for people of all ages & abilities.
We aim to inspire the next generation of artists, makers & producers. Our network of local & regional creatives we work with bring intimate classes & immersive artistic experiences throughout our community & across the UK.
We create & deliver, SEN-friendly, participatory visual arts projects that engage with communities & we support young people who are interested in stepping into the art world to achieve art’s awards & qualifications. We create opportunities & champion collaboration with arts & cultural organisations, charities, schools & our freelance creative practitioners.
We work with partners from across the South East & beyond to address barriers to creativity for all children & young people aged 0-19, in challenging circumstances or from economically deprived or culturally poor areas, in a collaborative, innovative & sustainable way.

Supporting children & young people's creativity is at the heart of what we do.
In classes, workshops & events, both in person & online. Our participants imagine & experiment via the process of creating & all involved get to experience extraordinary moments.
Artpod is fully committed to supporting emerging young artists, both as an arts award centre & arts award advisers (discover- gold). We advocate creative relationships to nurture the next generation of artists, makers and inventors.
Based in Rottingdean, ArtPod is both an art studio & traditional shop by the sea however our twist is, we also make, sell and hire our creations and that of other local artists.
