Doodle – Art & Craft Entertainment | UK
Drop into a pop up gallery and workshop where children of all ages are invited to join cartoonist and artist Scott for a celebration of monstrous art making, perfect for children’s events and family fun days. We all know that kids love drawing and colouring; but a creative environment is also key to igniting their enthusiasm and imagination.
Doodle aims to inspire children, creating a candy shop of colour and an irresistible hive of artistic activity. Doodle is where children can experiment with super bright paint pens on larger than life comical beasties, they can be inspired to draw their own monster creations, contribute to an impish gallery and have an original cartoon created by Scott, just for them…
The pens allow the daring and the timid to step up and boldly begin to explore a world of colour. They are water-based yet dry almost instantly, as well as odourless and non-toxic.The show will include big cartoons for children to colour and will also provide a place for them to draw their own work and exhibit the pictures alongside other artworks.
Scott will provide quality art materials and will also ‘swap’ pictures with the children by drawing them cartoon requests on card to take home with them. Inspiration for the art works can range from specialised 'fantastic creature' workshops or be subject based such as wildlife, farm or curriculum oriented themes. The bold graphic framework allows all abilities to join in the colouring process and may also incorporate words.
CRB, Public Liability Insurance and Risk Assessment details available on request.
The venue should provide tables and some chairs.
Standard Length of Hire:
Doodle can be hired for 2 hours up to a whole day with breaks.
"...The project at Westover School incorporated the skills and talents of 54 Year 4 children and the able artists within the school, 21 in number. The whole of the school staff were also keen to draw so we invited them to participate as well. Scott and I planned well together in advance so both adults were familiar with objectives and expected outcomes. The staff involvement was brilliant and the children responded to the challenge with confidence and maturity, a really successful venture."

"Scott worked with two year six classes at Milton Park Primary School, Weston-Super-Mare recently. He arrived promptly and was extremely well prepared, bringing all necessary equipment with him. This consisted of art materials and paint pens, which were new to the children, so the whole experience for them was original and stimulating. Scott engaged the children in drawing activities which they could all take part in and then this led on to the actual task in hand. The children and staff described the experience as ‘fun’, ‘creative’, ‘colourful’, ‘cool’, ‘different’, ‘arty’, ‘unusual’ and 'I want to do it again!’. We thoroughly recommend Scott for this type of work after witnessing his artistic skill and his ability to interact effectively with everyone. "
