Go Sketch Art Activities and Birthday Parties for Children

We have been running art birthday parties in Bristol and beyond for over 5 years now and we love it!

From painting parties with mini easels to zendoodle art to Manga cartoons, we can offer a fun activity for your arty child! We can even tailor it to your child’s interests. 

Looking for online art classes to do at home?

“I LOVE your approach and the way your personality shines through. It’s given me and my daughter a lot more confidence to try things, and she’s gradually overcoming her perfectionist tendencies. We have done up to the first seascape lesson so far, and I’m looking forward to some more time after school dedicated to ART. Very pleased to have found you. “

  • 5 star review  Steph came to do a party for a 7th birthday. She was excellent with the children, held their attention for the whole 1.5 hrs. The art they created was lovely and there was no mess to tidy away at the end! I would highly recommend Go Sketch as a party for those children interested in art of all kinds.

  • 5 star review  We had a GoSketch party for our 8 year old daughter and her friends. They had a fantastic time. Emma was lovely with them and guided them through creating their masterpiece. It was a calm and creative party that the children all enjoyed. Made it really easy too as Emma provided all the materials and invites. There was nothing to clear up after, so we could just get on with having some food. Would definitely recommend. Our children have done lots of artwork since then, so were definitely inspired. Thank you.

  • 4 star review  From one 11 and one 14 year old girl: Really enjoyed it and great results at the Go Sketch Portraiture Workshop in WoT. Possibly improved upon if the group was split into two different age groups with slightly different info being given to each group.

  • 5 star review  My daughter invited a few school friends to do some clay modelling with Emma at Go Sketch to help her celebrate her 6th birthday. They were all entertained for the full hour and made some beautiful Christmas Tree Decorations. We definitely recommend an “Arty Party” with Go Sketch ���

  • 5 star review  My 6-year-old and her friends had a great time at their painting party. Emma was generous with her time and we liked how she divided the session into small, manageable tasks to keep everyone’s attention. She was also super efficient at setting up and tidying up. Would definitely recommend for anyone who’s looking for an arty party.
