Hi everyone. My name is Jo and I hope to welcome you to Arty Splats soon.
A bit about me: I am mum to two very high energy and fun loving boys, Harry and Finley and they have taken part in Arty Splats classes since they were babies. They are growing up way too quickly but they have such special memories of taking part in Arty Splats classes and they have both had a few Arty Splats parties along the way as well. My two boys are also the reason I created Arty Splats! I designed the Arty Splats Educational Programme as I could not find the right class for my two children when they were younger. They were super active, didnt like to sit still and had an enormous curisoty about the world and they always needed to be busy! As a parent I wanted a class that would help them genuinely work towards their Early Learning Goals and boost their confidence, self esteem and also a class that was totally child centred. At home I would spend hours designing, setting up and then cleaning up activities that would keep them stimulated (when I see you at class ask me about the 'rice incident'). From this we all developed an absolute love for art and messy play! At the point of my second maternity leave I had been a teacher for many, many years. But, teaching didnt offer me an opportunity for flexible working. I also saw a gap in the market for a high quality class that would combine art, messy play, singing, dancing, bubbles, parachutes and so much more! And so Arty Splats was born. I genuinely love delivering Arty Splats classes, parties, nursery sessions and events because I have seen over the years the difference Arty Splats makes to each individual child. I literally have the best job in the world!
If you have any questions please do not hestitate to get in touch. I look forward to meeting you and your little one soon!
