Let's Make Art

Karen and Alice started Let’s Make Art in a community hall with their own collections of art supplies and a lot of imagination. Since then their company has spread its wings and has grown into one of the most sought after mobile studios in the UK.

Their unique and inventive approach to art making has enabled them to work with other like-minded organisations and artists. Their playful and stylish workshops present exclusive and contemporary ways for children and grownups to express their creativity.

Collaborating on projects means they have presented their ideas to a wide variety of venues, including; schools, museums, art galleries, shops, restaurants, libraries, homes and festivals.

Karen and Alice have created free online tutorials using easy to source materials from the home and DIY Kits for sale, all available on their Instagram @letsmakeartuk and @letsmakeart_store

Current programme;

- A weekly after school visual arts program for Key Stage 1 and 2, which explores all aspects of making.
