Welcome to the Art Room

The BIG Summer Art Challenge from The Art Room

August will be a month of creativity with a summer art pack! I have put together 2 packs – one for younger artists (aged 5-15) and one for adults (with more of a watercolours and sketching theme).

Each pack is £20 and gives you 4 tasks + 1 bonus rainy day task so that works out at £5 a week. The pack is gift wrapped and contains extra treats to make it a sensory experience and as calming as possible.

You get materials to work with in the pack although you may need extra bits and pieces like scissors and glue from home. Full instructions and colour images of examples are included too so that you can work through the tasks without any digital connection required.

Arts Award kids will have their sketchbooks included but for those that do not have them you can purchase one for an extra £3.

I have paint brushes and extra watercolour paper available to buy too - £3 watercolour paper packs and brushes priced from £3-£6 depending on which ones you choose – see attached photo.

Payment can be made by Paypal between Monday 20th July – Sunday 26th July. Please do add me as a friend on paypal or I lose a big chunk of money as I am a small business and it makes a huge impact.

Paypal email – theartroomsunderland@hotmail.com or paypal.me/theartroomsunderland

Packs will be put together 27th/28th and posted or ready to collect 30/31st.

£3.60 is the postage cost with a sketchbook – it will be classed as a small parcel, or collection is obviously FREE. If you leave nearby I can of course drop them off as I have done in the past.

First zoom is Saturday 1st August, second is Saturday 29th August (1pm) for kids

First zoom is Friday 31st July and Friday 28th August 28th (6pm) for adults.

There will be extra zoom meet ups and additional challenges that will be going on the facebook page and remember to bring your art library books back to swop for some new ones too. It is all very exciting! Keep in touch,

The art room is a space to create, inspire and learn.

A pop -up art room to create, inspire and teach.

Hello and welcome to my website all about The Art Room.

What is it all about?

I am an art teacher that creates a POP UP art room at various schools, community groups, cafes, CICs, collages, art galleries..... in order to teach a range of art and craft lessons. I love learning and I love creating. Those are my 2 passions in life and 'The Art Room' helps me to pass on my knowledge and experience to new artists young and young at heart.

A little about me......


After studying fine art and design and technology at University, I went on to do my teacher training qualifications (QTS). I have been teaching in primary and secondary schools for close to 15 years now and recently moved over to teach in art galleries and museums too as well as schools and my studio. I absolutely love my subject, I love teaching and I love the north east of England which is why I have opened up the Art Room in Sunderland. I am also a primary school governor and part of the steering group for PATERN - the Primary Arts Teacher and Educator Regional Network.

I have enhanced DBS, Qualified Teacher Status and the relevant insurances. Get in touch and let me know how we can work together!
