Arty Start - Creative fun from the heart
About us

Our Philosophy










At Arty Start we believe children are naturally creative.  Providing them with an early experience in an arts-rich learning environment offers children a safe and fun-filled opportunity for authentic self expression.


Children engage all their senses to explore the world around them. In our classes we seek inspiration from looking at the every day world which surrounds us, and seeing the beauty in such things just as a child would look at the world with wonder and awe.

Offering children an Arty Start builds their confidence and self esteem and facilitates the development of cognitive, social, emotional and sensory motor skills.


We believe there is no right or wrong answers in art and therefore it is a valuable tool in building

a child's confidence and self esteem.

    ' I have always shared my passion for art and creativity with my own children by creating an art-rich environment.  My children have access to a colorful assortment of art supplies and their vibrant paintings hang on the walls of my home.'
    ' I like the idea of encouraging parents and schools to embrace the creative process, thereby assisting children to reach their true creative potential, through their own efforts by offering them joyful learning opportunities.'


"Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun "- Mary Lou Cook
