the art wizards

The Little Grand Tour tutors are passionate about art and helping children develop an appreciation of culture early on in their lives. Starting gallery and museum trips at a young age develops both a positive attitude to learning and helps nurture the creativity that we passionately believe each child has.
We tailor tours specifically to the needs of children ensuring there is mix of listening, interaction and knowledge gathering. Above all, we want your children to have an experience that shows them learning can be fun. We look forward to meeting you and inspiring your children!
