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 early years, primary school children and families in both educational settings and public spaces.

We work to commission on bespoke projects in close relationship with our clients, responding to various aspirations/settings and delivering to mixed age groups…

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 apply childrens’ art to a professional quality platform, showcasing their works at their absolute best…
