Great news, I am now offering Art Parties!

Perfect for children who don’t enjoy the huge noisy village hall parties and want something a bit different. They can make something to treasure. Activities can be discussed and tailored to suit needs.

Not just for children though, adults also enjoy a bit of creative fun and love to do something completely different from their daily life… Also great for staff ‘bonding’ days.

Fun Arty games, Clay, Printing, Collage and much, much more available.

For prices and to discuss ideas, just get in touch with me either via my contact form, or email

Spacefruit Kids Art Club – Abstract Art Dice Rolling Game

This was a fun game the children played which got quite wild!

First of all we looked at some images of abstract art and talked about them and how you could often see just what you wanted to see in them. Then I gave them all a flat blank card dice to decorate each side of with something different; such as their favourite colour, words, spots, zig zags, stars, weather, animals, eyes, wiggly lines….. etc…

After they’d turned their flat dice into 3D dice, they set to going wild with a variety of art materials – inks, paints, oil and chalk pastels, pencils, wax crayons, water sprayer… I also set a timer for them to spend 3 minutes on each dice roll. So the idea was that they rolled the dice, then got going on their paper for 3 minutes with whatever the dice rolled onto, with whatever art materials they fancied. The results were quite wonderful.

This is a game that my daughter also really loves playing at home; we have a huge piece of cardboard that we roll out to cover the floor to protect it from all the splatters that follow!!!

Pssssst by the way… this isn’t just for the kids! I’ve used this game to create some pictures of my own which I quite like!

Kids Art Workshops – papier mache cacti

For this project, we initially looked at the amazing wierd and wonderful sculptures by Chiaozza: 

I also took in a selection of my own cacti and succulents for the kids to draw, to get their imaginations rolling and give inspiration for more shapes and forms. They then designed what they wanted to create in papier mache and cardboard, and set to with the papier mache! In total this turned into a 3 week project, as some of the designs were wonderfully ambitious – they really pushed themselves which was great to see!

The forms were constructed over wooden skewers which were then stuck into holes in wooden blocks. 

You can see the results, though the photographs really don’t do them justice!
