What is unique about Artrageous?

  • Artrageous Kids encourages and supports children to explore ideas and create art that is driven by their own interests and that is meaningful to them as individuals.
  • We provide a rich and varied playful environment in which children can lead the direction of their creativity and discover new things at their own pace.
  • We focus on the process of creation rather than on the outcome, which means there is no such thing as failure – this means that children can experiment and try new things in an environment that is free of any preconceptions about art and creativity.
