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. “

  • 4 star review  My daughter had a Go Sketch party where they made whatever they chose to from clay. Emma was really good at explaining techniques to them and helped them through the process when they needed it. She had a lovely calm manner and you could tell that she was used to working with big groups of children. Emma kept them all busy and very focused for an hour. Everyone had a great time and they were very pleased with their masterpieces.

  • 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  Thank you for the AMAZING Deep Sea and Eye drawing workshop today. Seth and George loved it!! They often find it difficult to concentrate as have so much energy, so the fact they focused for a whole day and produced some brilliant pictures shows how engaging and interesting the workshop was 🙂

  • 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.
