Wee Arty Explorers 

Do you have any budding artists? What about any young explorers? Our family friendly art classes for children AKA Wee Art Explorers combines both of these for an awesome half day!

You will head out in our canoes, safely guided by your canoe instructor, where you will make regular landings on the shoreline to collect materials from the natural world (nothing alive though!) for your wee ones’ masterpieces on canvas.

Once your Wee Arty Explorers have gathered enough materials we will return to the launch site for an art explosion. Don’t worry about making a mess though, we will provide them with aprons to ensure that we don’t limit their artistic flair.

While your wee ones are being creative we will provide you with a lovely cuppa. We have facilities to dry the resulting works of art allowing you to take them home at the end of the session.
