For those who don’t know, at ARTventurers we run colourful, creative art classes for babies, toddlers and children, plus creative events and parties too. Although inevitably there is an element of mess in what we do (try painting with a group of toddlers and NOT getting messy!!) we’re much more than a messy play group. Our classes are centred around children’s learning and development through art and creative play – building confidence, developing skills, exploring techniques and new materials and having lots of fun along the way! We squidge, squish, paint, model, explore, sing and dance our way through a new theme every week and take the ARTventurers fun into schools and nurseries, festivals, work with local authorities, shopping centres, and other businesses and organisations too!
I joined the ARTventurers team and I am the proud owner of ARTventurers Leamington Spa, Central Warwickshire and Coventry. My story begins from a teaching background of over 15 years with Coventry City Council where I gained valuable experience of both primary and secondary education and becoming a real advocate of the arts locally. I am hugely passionate about working with children and providing a quality arts education and this is what gravitated me towards ARTventurers. I saw the dedication involved within ARTventurers thus creating a children-centred class which was more than just messy play but focussed on exploration and learning through creative play and had to part of things! I have been gradually building up ARTventurers Leamington Spa, Central Warwickshire and Coventry since September 2016 and I now have weekly classes running every day in term time across Warwickshire & Coventry, monthly Saturday family classes plus have birthday parties, events & festivals events booked in at regular intervals! Never a dull moment!!
