About Us

As our our name might suggest, at ARTventurers we’re all about ART! Whether it’s introducing our Baby ARTventurers to their very first painting experiences, exploring new art materials and techniques with our Little ARTventurers, delivering creative workshops for older children, injecting colour and creativity into events across the UK or celebrating special birthdays with our fab range of creative birthday packages, we’re all about getting children involved in art and creative play because of all of the fantastic benefits that art brings!

We’ve been delivering our unique brand of multi award winning #artventurersfun since 2010 when the very first ARTventurers classes were launched in the north east of England and now each week hundreds of children and their grown ups attend our classes across the UK!

A fully accredited Gold member of the Children’s Activities Association, over the past decade ARTventurers has won a number of amazing awards, voted for by parents who attend all sorts of classes up and down the country. We’re proud to have been named Most Loved Academic/Creative Activity in 2019, 2020 and 2021 in the What’s on 4 Kids Awards – a real testament to the passion, creativity and enthusiasm that our franchise team and class leaders bring to their classes, events and parties every day! And you can find out more about just WHY we’re so passionate about getting children involved in art and creative play HERE

But the best recommendations for our classes are those which come from our Little ARTventurers, their parents/carers and the smiles on their faces – you can check some of them out HERE and on our social media!

Fiona is a member of the board of the Children’s Activities Association, the national industry led membership and accrediting body for UK children’s activities providers and is also a Forbes Contributor.
