‘Creativity is contagious, pass it on’,

Albert Einstein

Treefrog Art designs and facilitates imaginative, engaging art through online filmed workshops, Art Clubs, Projects, Courses and Parties. It was founded by Vicki Ostersen in 2018 to promote creativity in all areas of the community.

Treefrog Art Projects showcase the collective creative energy of schools and community groups. From 24 to more than 1000 participants, at the heart of any project is the belief that there is real value in the contribution of every individual.

After school Art Clubs are run in schools local to Petersfield, Hampshire, for children of all ages. We use a huge range of materials and techniques and look at the work of artists as we go, encouraging individual expression and producing some really impressive artwork.

I really enjoyed chatting to Dave Williams about drawing, art classes, community projects and the beginnings of Treefrog Art. Listen to our conversation for Petersfield’s Shine Radio here.

Explore, break boundaries, use your imagination, do things differently, challenge yourself, and have fun!

Testimonials from Art Club

‘This is the third time we have been involved in a community art project with Vicki and yet again I am delighted with both the process and the end result. Every single child at our school has had a wonderful time creating their own unique piece of art using a variety of techniques. Vicki has the vision as well as the skills to put these all together to create something truly magical. Creating links with the wider community is very important to us as a school and the art installation in St Peters Church is a perfect way to draw families in to a setting they might otherwise not visit.’ Allyson Crew, Headteacher Petersfield Infant School

‘Children from Froxfield Primary School had a truly great experience building a mosaic with Vicki and Louise. Tremendous care was taken in reflecting the children’s thoughts, ideas and wishes into the final artwork design. Building the mosaic had a profoundly positive affect on every single child, without exception. We are hugely delighted with the final result which perfectly represents our school.’ Mrs V Farrow, Head Teacher, Froxfield CofE Primary School.

‘Had to let you know that each time I have visited the garden this week I have bumped into little people bringing followers to look at their stones. They have brought so much pleasure to so many people. You really did do a fantastic job. 😊 Thank you.’ Rosemary Clark – Art in the Physic Garden

Both of my children spent time at Petersfield Infant school creating projects with Vicki, from the visually stunning stones project that was displayed in the Physic garden (my son sleeps with his stone each night to this day!), to the excellent exhibition ‘A Brilliant Day’. The exhibit showcased our business and brought new customers into the fold of the Townhouse family – thank you Vicki !  Dom Humphries Owner
