Whilst we can’t meet in person why not get your weekly arty and creative fix from us with our ARTventurers At Home packs? We’ve adapted our award-winning art classes for children so that you can still make painty memories with your little artists but from the comfort of your own homes!

Choose either the Baby ARTventurers (6m-18m) or Little ARTventurers (18m – 4yrs) sessions when booking and you’ll receive an exciting pack containing everything you need (including paint, glue and glitter) for our 5 week term. I’ll be posting videos in our private Facebook group every week to guide you through everything so that you and your little one can get the maximum benefit out of the activities. You will also be able to share your child’s creations, chat with other parents, and get more tips within the group each week.

The beauty of these sessions if that you can watch my videos at any time during the week at a time to suit you and your little one and the activities are great to get all of the family involved too! You could even spread the activities out over the week- it’s always great to have these kind of things up your sleeve!

We have five creative sessions planned for our Spring Term including an Underwater Adventure, Mother’s Day and Easter as well as our special showstopper which we’ll be working on each week.

You’ll need some painting tools to complete the activities at home, which you could can easily pick up your local shops or use items you already have or you can order our ‘My Painting Tools Pack‘ which provides you with a fabulous selection of different, age-appropriate tools for your child to explore.

All this is just £35 including free delivery to west Leeds postcodes

Does your child want to be part of something monumental and create something memorable as a response to the pandemic?

We could not be more excited that we are launching the beginning of a brilliant project, ‘Generation Inspiration’ and that you can be a part of it.
Our next generation will be know as inspirational for the way they have coped, adapted and continued to smile through everything over the past year and we are going to be spending the next month exploring their feelings and experiences of Covid through the medium of the arts.
If your child is of primary school age and interested in being part of writing their own song, being in a song video, being part of writing a shadow story or even creating their own contemporary art response, or perhaps they are secondary school age and can already play a musical instrument (vocals also and to or from any level) then just send an initial message to state your interest to ruth@music-inspirations.co.uk
Everything created will be available for everyone to see through a dedicated project page on our website, or videos on our YouTube channel and music to be downloaded from Band Camp.
Information and chance to sign up to the individual workshops will be coming out over the next few days – so keep your eyes peeled and register your interest now.’

We are able to provide all the workshops completely free of charge, due to funding from HM Government, in association with The National Lottery Community Fund.
