Intoart at Peckham Levels

Intoart is an art and design studio based in South London working inclusively with people with learning disabilities.

We work with adults and young people with learning, physical and sensory disabilities and those on the Autistic Spectrum.

Intoart continues to be led by its co-founders who set up the organisation in 2001 on leaving art college, committed to bring about change in response to the lack of opportunity to high quality arts education and opportunities for and by people with learning disabilities.

Our vision is for people with learning disabilities to be visible, equal and established artists.

Our programme includes the following activity:

Intoart Art Studio

Weekly art studio sessions focused on learning skills and long-term commitment to progressions as artists

Intoart Design Studio

Unique design studio run inclusively by people with learning disabilities focused on design practice spanning illustration, product design, print, textiles, ceramics and fashion.
