Wild Things Art Den
Spring Term 1
5 Mondays from Mon 8th Jan to Mon 5th Feb
Ideal 18 months-5yrs old
The first session on 8th Jan is a free trial session! (booking essential)

Booking link: https://www.quickdrawstories.com/event-details/wild-things-art-den-spring-term-1-2024

We're delighted to announce the beginning of a new weekly family club, Wild Things Art Den! The art den will provide a space for creativity and socialising for toddlers and their parents. Each exercise will develop creativity, hand-eye coordination, and a love of the natural world.

We'll be located at The Garden Hall in The Lodge, within the beautiful grounds of Sutton Ecology Centre. Each session will have a nature theme, whether it's a particular animal, bug, or tree. After an introductory song, we'll have a short walk in the Ecology Centre grounds for inspiration before returning to the Garden Hall to make some art. Towards the end of the session, we provide fruit and squash/water with optional hot drinks for adults.
The Garden Hall has easy access to a toilet and secure buggie storage, as well as a small kitchen area.
We (Mark and Zoe) are a husband and wife team who met while studying illustration. Between us, we have led many creative activities for children and adults. We are DBS-checked and trained in first aid.
