Miss Craig's new adventure......

After years of watching potentially great young artists struggle against the never-ending focus on National Curriculum levels and targets, I decided to create an Art for Fun experience…

… and so, the one-week Art Trip to Cornwall* was born.  I have run this trip for all four Middle Schools in Windsor since 2003.

These pupils (and their accompanying adults who also had a sketchbook and art pack and were far more reluctant than the kids) were immersed in Art for a week and, without even trying, they leapt up the NC ladder,


…this is not the memory they treasure…

 they each have their own favourite moments, all art-related, whether it was constructing a sand sculpture on the beach at St. Ives, discovering the freedom of watercolour overlooking the Padstow estuary or sketching, in charcoal, the cow that chased Miss Craig…

…they have the knowledge that they can ‘do art’ now and forever, whenever and however they like….

 ….and so can you

...one trip to Cornwall a year wasn’t enough:

           I would like as many people as possible, of any age, to join in with           art activities FOR FUN whenever they can....

…and so, Hands-on Art Adventures in Old Windsor was born.

I look forward to meeting you,


sailing?... not this time

dancing?... not this time

  sports cars?.. not this time
