Creative, imaginative and FUN Saturday morning ART sessions FOR KIDS of all ages and abilities. Try a new creative skill every month in 2020

by Natasha Graves in Cwmbran, Wales, United Kingdom

New stretch target

The extra funding and pledges would be used to make these art sessions mobile. Imagine being able to bring these sessions to kids in schools, hospitals and care homes or at the beach or mountain top. Setting up out doors in an accessible bus with creatives selected by the kids bases on what new and interesting arts and craft skills they would like to learn about and practice next! 


About Me

Always seeking creative and imaginative ways to encourage others to get creative, believe in themselves and take care of their own wellbeing! I’m Natasha and for over five years I have organised and hosted creative art sessions both indoors and outdoors with all ages and abilities. Both one to one and in groups including care homes, kids with learning difficulties, vulnerable young people & women. I started my creative business nGraves with the help of The Prince’s Trust. In October I was awarded The Prince’s Trust Wales Young Ambassador of the year award for my time spent giving back to The Trust. The response from sharing my story of living with anxiety & depression and how art & getting creative continues to help me take care of my wellbeing, I felt encouraged to help kids. 

Fun ART For Kids is looking to raise £1250 to offer kids monthly themed Saturday morning Art Sessions with a difference.

Imagine a space that is warm and welcoming, safe and secure where kids of all ages and abilities can meet, observe and chat with Artists, Makers, Designers & Crafts People. These experienced creatives are passionate, and kindly willing to share their enthusiasm with young minds keen to have a go or just soak it all in. Sharing these memorable experiences with their Mum, Dad, Bampy, Nanny, Primary Care Givers or Loved Ones who are creating secure attachments, uplifting their own wellbeing and relaxing!


Fun ART For Kids Vision & Aim?

These art sessions are a space where making, dreaming, imagining, remembering, chatting, painting, and creating merge seamlessly. I believe that if I can gently encourage one person to get creative long enough to forget their troubles then my day is not wasted. 

This Creative space doesn't have to be indoors or even have four walls. Parents, grandparents, carers, loved ones and creatives help to create this warm & welcoming, safe & secure space starting in South Wales. In Crickhowell on every 1st Saturday, Cwmbran on the 2nd Saturday and Cardiff on the 3rd Saturday morning of every month in 2020!

Why am I crowdfunding?

With your help and the Back Her Business pledge I will be able to:

  • Secure indoor & outdoor spaces to hold art sessions. 
  • Purchase eco-friendly, reusable materials and equipment.
  • Engage & pay Artist, Makers, Designers and Craft People. 
  • Advertise effectively to reach a wider demographic of kids
