‘Creativity is contagious, pass it on’, Albert Einstein
Things are a little different at Treefrog Art HQ at the moment! Covid-19 has temporarily put a stop to after school Art Clubs, holiday workshops, school projects, Saturday Afternoon Art and Drawing Upstairs at the Townhouse. But…. it hasn’t dampened the creativity!
With the help of my very capable assistants, who are in school years 3, 5, 7 and 9, I am posting Art Activities on my Instagram and Facebook page @treefrog123. (You can access these by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page). These are projects that are designed with lock down in mind. We use simple materials, encouraging creativity with lots of recycling and up cycling. There’s outdoor art and indoor art, quick art and ideas that take longer. Everything can be adapted to suit children of all ages, and all accompanying photographs are of art work that really is done by children rather than a masquerading grown up!
If you’d like a project to do at home why not order a Treefrog Art Bag?! Every bag comes with absolutely everything you need to create some great art, along with step by step instructions and art materials you can use again and again….
All Art Bags are deliverable within Petersfield, and slightly beyond, free of charge. They can also be posted. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to order yours.

Thursday Mornings: Drawing Upstairs at The Townhouse
While The Townhouse is shut, our drawing class for grown ups continues! We are tuning into WhatsApp from our kitchen tables every Thursday morning from 9.30 until 11.30, with a break for home brewed coffee in the middle. I set a new subject every week, with warm up exercises, and offer guidance and tuition facilitated by technology!
Treefrog Art designs and delivers imaginative, engaging art workshops. It was founded by Vicki Ostersen in 2018 to promote creativity in all areas of the community. Workshops provide opportunities to explore lots of different materials and techniques, whilst encouraging individual expression.
Drawing, painting, collaging, cutting… Working with watercolour, buttons, dye, glue… Treefrog Art encourages dexterous fingers and hand-eye coordination. Workshops inspire confidence in all generations, and celebrate individual and collaborative achievements.
Treefrog Art Projects showcase the collective creative energy of schools and community groups. From 24 to 1000 participants, at the heart of any Project is the belief that there is real value in the contribution of every individual.
Treefrog Art courses give opportunities to develop new skills over a period of days or weeks.
