Room 13 International is a charitable organisation and represents a growing number of student-run arts studios in schools world wide.
The story of Room 13 began in 1994 when a group of students aged 9-11 established their own art studio in Room 13, Coal Primary School, near Fort William Scotland. They ran the studio as a business, raising funds to buy at materials and employ a professional artist in Residence to work with them.
