About Makers toddler art classes
Orgianly set up in 2013, fellow artist Gillan Elam passed the baton to Jeni in 2014.
The form of the sessions has grown organically over the years. Both building on Jeni’s experiecnes working with very young children and responding to the needs of the busy parent/toddler or carere/toddler duos who become happy regulars.
For the bright and brilliant slither of oppertunity between the first experemntal mark makeings and the inevitble graduating to the art corner of the classroom, nusery and other settings, Makers becomes a hub of creative exploration for the Toddlers of Tooting.
