Welcome to Arty Moose!

Our classes are accessible regardless of ability. They are designed to complement the Primary National Curriculum Art learning objectives. Projects reference contemporary and historical artists and take inspiration from different cultures around the world.


We work with small groups, covering a wide variety of arts activities including drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, printmaking and textiles. Classes are fun and interactive with clear learning objectives designed to develop skills such as colour, shade, line, shape, form, tone & space.


Our young artists use professional quality art materials and learn techniques and processes used by practising artists. We are committed to helping all children who want to be creative, learn new skills, explore, and be proud of their own outcomes and artistic achievements.


Most of all, Arty Moose believes art should be fun!
