Created by Arts & Mindset Educator and Dot Kids Founder, Julie Bevan.

Dot Kids' innovative approach to Art Education, isn't just about colours on a canvas; it's a catalyst for self-discovery, confidence and well-being.

By igniting a passion for creativity early on, Dot Kids is sowing seeds of innovation and resilience, nurturing a future where every child feels empowered to boldly embrace their individuality and make their mark on the world.

We are dedicated to increasing children's well-being, self-expression and confidence through the transformative power of art; a mission to inspire creativity and unlock the boundless potential within each child.

Dot Kids create immersive, innovative Art Programs, Workshops & Art Clubs that go beyond conventional Art Education; empowering children to embrace their unique perspectives, fostering resilience and a profound sense of self.

Driven by a commitment to cultivating a generation of confident and empathetic individuals, Dot Kids seamlessly blends art with mindset development, shaping young minds to navigate the complexities of the world with resilience and understanding.

There are two ways to donate:

1. When a parent or carer books their child onto a Dot Kids workshop they can also choose to pay a donation towards a free place to a child from a low-income family.

2. Donation only. (see below). It can be as little as a pound, it all adds up and will accumilate to pay for children to attend workshops for free.

In addition Dot Kids offers two Free Pupil Premium places for all Art Clubs within schools.
