Welcome to Art Hoppers

About Art Hoppers

Art Hoppers is a London (Hackney) based art education organisation which was established by artists Claire Ward-Thornton and Inés Szamrey in 2012.

We design / deliver high quality art activities for nurseries, schools and families in both educational settings and public spaces. This includes CPD for teaching staff, promoting our method of creative learning through art techniques applied to the curriculum.

We work to commission on bespoke projects in close relationship with partners.

Ah! philosophy

We trust in children’s ideas. We value the unique qualities of their art and love the energy that they bring to the creative process.

We’re keen to share the inherent creativity of children and to help them see and fully appreciate these talents for themselves.

Presentation and context are hugely important to us. We present childrens’ art to a professional gallery standard, showcasing talent at it’s absolute best whilst exhibiting visual narratives which promote creative learning.
