These classes are pitched at children who have discovered a love of art but find themselves with limited access to creative time be it at school or at home. I will steer them along a more grown up exploratory path, with access to a huge range of artist materials and techniques broadly following the daytime adult programme that I have developed and run over the last 2 years.
I am passionate about the benefits of the artistic process for adults and children - both in terms of developing morale and pride through the artwork itself but also as an important antidote to the technology that we are surrounded by now.
Creative mindful pursuits can bring such joy and are so important for mental wellbeing, I'm so happy to be able to share my experience of this with my own and other children. Through my love of art I will encourage their creative flair, develop their artistic skills and nourish their

Children's Arty Parties:
Arty Parties are a great way for children to work with their close friends on some genuinely lovely little gifts that they can take home and treasure
We typically do two mini projects during a 90 minute 'Arty Party' which can be chosen in advance by the birthday boy or girl.
Choice of activities includes: button art, pebble creatures, decoupage, scratch printing and dotty painting to name but a few.
Various venues: Can be hosted in a number of different venues including halls or private houses where there is space.
Costs: £20 per child, (up to max of 10 children). Price includes all party preparation, materials, setting up, clearing up
of all things arty, guidance and lovely art themed party bag.
Cost includes pre-meet to look at samples of the mini project so that two favourites can be chosen.
