Sort of art foundation almost inspiring amateur (7)
We have the letters O_I_A_I. We believe the answer is ORIGAMI (we came up with it ourselves, but we checked with an online crossword assistant which didn't identify any other possible words). But we don't understand the wordplay part of the clue. It appears to be of the form "definition part, followed by wordplay part" with the definition part being "sort of art".
