About Us

Looking for an art class for your baby, toddler or child? A place where you can make new friends AND don’t have to worry about the mess?

ARTventurers have been running award-winning art classes for babies, toddlers and children since 2011 and every week hundreds of children join in with our unique brand of colourful, creative (often messy!) fun across the UK! In October 2017 we were named as BEST Baby/Toddler Development Activity (under 25 franchisees) and BEST Preschool Activity (under 25 franchisees) in the Whats On 4 Kids Awards 2017 – voted by the grown ups who come along and join in the ARTventurers fun each week!

Painting, modelling, sensory play, exploring, singing and music making…..our colourful, creative classes are interactive and provide a safe and secure environment for your child to explore and create while making new friends.


“I’m Fiona – the founder of ARTventurers! My own two (now not-so-little) ARTventurers Erin and Isaac were my inspiration to start running art classes for children back in 2008!

Fiona collageI drew on my own experience and work within the Early Years sector to design a series of colourful, fun art sessions with an emphasis on learning through creative play, exploring different art techniques and materials and developing lots of different skills in a safe, secure and social environment…..and ARTventurers was born! 

All of our sessions are carefully designed in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) – we focus on developing fine and gross motor skills, coordination, social and communication skills, problem solving, inspiring imaginations, learning about shapes, colours and the world around us, singing and dancing and creating confident explorers!

 We now have a number of branches of ARTventurers running in different parts of the country which is AMAZING, with hundreds of children joining in with the ARTventurers fun each week. It makes me so proud when parents and carers come to us and say how much they love our classes, how they can see the skills and confidence that their children have developed from attending ARTventurers and how they’ve been continuing the arty fun at home too!

We have a brilliant team of ARTventurers franchisees and class leaders and assistants who are enthusiastic, creative, full of energy and LOVE inspiring and creating with children every day and we can’t wait for what the future has in store for ARTventurers!”

Every child is unique……..

…and at ARTventurers we believe firmly in the benefits of free flow creative play for babies, toddlers and young children. We recognise that all children are unique and individual – the layout of our sessions allow children to explore and create… at their own pace, making their own choices and exercising their independence, resulting in a rich, happy and fun learning experience. Our sessions combine free flow play with a structured circle time and social time too.
