Johnny & Andy Art Classes

Art can build self-esteem, resilience, creativity and independent thinking. Regular classes can improve skill and knowledge as well as enabling them to form new friendships with other local children.

Classes start on 9th September and are run by Emily Rees, local primary school art teacher and designer. DBS Checked and First Aid trained.

Make your child's development more fun!
Our fun, structured play sessions take children on a journey of sporting imagination with engaging and energetic coaches supporting them every step of the way whilst teaching how to catch, pass, kick, run with the ball and play as part of a team. 
Our motto
Our motto is simple; "make it more fun". We do this by delivering our specifically designed programme for each age group withenergy, enthusiasm and excitement. This creates an atmosphere in the class that is totally unique and engaging for parents and children alike. 

What to expect
"Be prepared to run across the jungle, wade through the quick sand or sprint through Rugbytots Valley avoiding all the smoking boulders. Get ready to protect your egg, launch a missile or attack the pirates and seize the ship, all this of course, whilst trying to avoid the evil side lines!”
