Brave Knights and Fierce Dragons!


This week it’s been all about Knights and Dragons in our own nod to St George’s Day, ARTventurers style!

The Little ARTventurers in Liverpool, York and Sunderland have been having tons of fun creating royal crowns, making egg box dragons (will yours be a scary dragon or a friendly one??), paper cup dragons, knights shields with shiny paint and tinfoil and hunting for castles, knights and dragons in lots of foam!

Great fun and a big hit with all the toddlers and pre-schoolers!

Newcastle and Gateshead here we come!

We are super excited this week to be welcoming Emily to our little team with the launch of ARTventurers Newcastle and Gateshead. Emily is mum to Holly 3 and baby Faith aged just 4 months, and has been bringing Holly along to our Sunderland classes for more than a year now – we actually did an art party for Holly’s 2nd birthday and for her 3rd birthday too!

Emil and Holly enjoyed the format and activities at ARTventurers so much that Emily decided to take on a licence to launch her own classes – starting in May in Jesmond, Newcastle with more venues and classes planned in the coming months. Welcome to the team Emily – we know you’re going to be fab!

Thinking about starting a business running art classes for children?

Maybe you’re looking for a change of direction? Trying to find a job that will fit around the needs of your family? Or simply looking for a way to earn an income that’s fun and flexible too?

Running your own art classes for babies, toddlers and children is rewarding and great fun, and it’s something that you can fit around the changing needs of your own family. However starting up your own business can be daunting, costly, scary, nerve wracking – and sometime a bit lonely too!
