I am delighted to share the wonderful world of art with children through Escape2Art After School and I am also continuing to run our very popular Children's Arty Parties. For full info please see below:

  • 5pm - 6.30pm during term time.

  • Mondays: ages 9-11

  • Thursdays: 12 years old +

  • £13.50 per class including materials

  • Warm friendly family home environment

  • All materials provided

  • Maximum of 8 children per session

  • Artist led

These classes are pitched at children who have discovered a love of art but have limited access to creative time at school or 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 over the last few 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 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

self expression.

Typical classes will include:

  • Silver Birch trees - Acrylic

  • Watercolour painting - Autumn Leaves

  • Gouache painting - Abstract

  • Halloween pumpkins - soft pastel

  • Portraits - pencil

Please see my Terms and Conditions page for full information on my DBS clearance and other safeguarding information.

Children's Arty Parties:

Escape2Art Arty Party painted pebbles

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.

"We had a very cool birthday party for my 9 year old daughter, button art and painting stones. It was the most peaceful party we have had! All the children really enjoyed it"
