ARTventurers Messy Play

with ARTventurers Newcastle & Gateshead

At ARTventurers we LOVE Art! And we especially love getting children involved in art at an early age!

Art has so many benefits – from squishing and squidging in paint to exploring colours and textures, learning about the world around us, developing fine and gross motor skills, making friends and building confidence.


The aim of all ARTventurers sessions is to nurture and develop a child’s creativity by providing the opportunities, guidance, inspiration and materials to explore, experiment and express themselves through a range of colourful art, creative and sensory activities.


Plus our activities and sessions for pre school age children are carefully planned to support the Early Learning goals in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage.


All children are individual and the free flow element of our ARTventurers classes recognises this – children can explore and create at their own pace and in their own time. We incorporate fun singing and dancing and social time in our classes too – combined into a jam packed session of colourful, creative (and often messy!) fun.


One of the things we are proudest of at ARTventurers is watching our Baby and Little ARTventurers grow and develop their skills through coming along to our classes, forming friendships and relationships and becoming confident explorers with lively imaginations……now THAT’s why we love Art!




More details...

We run different ARTventurers classes for different age groups and mixed age classes too.

  • Baby ARTventurers sessions are designed for children who are aged 6 months and over and who are ideally sitting unaided, up to around the age of 18 months.
  • Little ARTventurers sessions are for pre school age children and as a guide we suggest that they are suitable for children aged 18 months and above.
  • Family ARTventurers classes are mixed age so all of the family can join in together – babies and older siblings too! In these classes we “zone” our activities to make sure everyone can have lots of colourful, creative messy fun safely together!

Classes are currently running in Jesmond, Great Park, Whickham, Dunston & Chester le Street and pre-booking is essential.
