Cool it Art is a social enterprise set up to provide free artistic opportunities; it’s core activity being weekly art classes for children in the Lambeth area focussing on creating art projects out of household junk.

Cool it Art was set up, in May 2013, by Amanda Callis, a City and Guilds of London Art School Graduate, who has worked in art facilitation for a number of years. She has worked for Cool it Schools on various projects such as ZSL London Zoo’s “Big Hairy Bug Draw”, as an art facilitator in her own right as well as setting up and running free art classes up in North London for an artist’s collective.

Since 2013 we have gone from strength to strength delivering over 104 project in Lambeth, greater London and the South – you can check out all our projects from when we started here. We have worked with different Artists and Volunteers over the years you can see the team here.
