toddler art

Tot Art is about teaching children Art through celebrating & exploring their ideas, equipping children with the skills & techniques to communicate their ideas. It is about "proper" drawing, "proper" painting, understanding techniques, concepts & the work of Artists & Designers in an enjoyable way & with complete acceptance that we are all different.


Wendy Briggs, founder of Tot Art, has won 2 major National awards for teaching Art & has taught & written curriculums over the past 21 years for a variety of educational establishments from nursery up to art college. All Tot Art schemes of work, lessons & workshops have been written by Wendy Briggs.


Tot Art classes & workshops cover a range of activities, develop a range of skills & promote a creative way of thinking. These skills & abilities will be called upon when children start school, whilst at school & in later life. The lessons which Wendy Briggs writes for Tot Art pre school classes involve activities & experiences for children in 5 out of the 7 areas specified in the Early Years Foundation Stage educational programme - click to read how. The lessons & workshops which Wendy Briggs writes for older children make reference to National Curriculum guidelines, but demand a higher level of creative thought, develop the ability to interpret what is taught in an individual way & aim for a higher level of achievement than National guidelines for age related skill targets.

Before children have a large vocabulary or are able to write with ease, they can pick up a pencil & make marks. At Tot Art classes & workshops children learn there is a wealth of ways in which they can enjoy communicating visually.
