Wild Things Art Den
Spring Term 1
5 Mondays from Mon 8th Jan to Mon 5th Feb
10:30am-12pm
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.

Make your child's development more fun!
Our fun, structured play sessions take children on a journey of sporting imagination with engaging and energetic coaches supporting them every step of the way whilst teaching how to catch, pass, kick, run with the ball and play as part of a team. 
Our motto
Our motto is simple; "make it more fun". We do this by delivering our specifically designed programme for each age group with energy, enthusiasm and excitement. This creates an atmosphere in the class that is totally unique and engaging for parents and children alike. 
What to expect
"Be prepared to run across the jungle, wade through the quick sand or sprint through Rugbytots Valley avoiding all the smoking boulders. Get ready to protect your egg, launch a missile or attack the pirates and seize the ship, all this of course, whilst trying to avoid the evil side lines!”
