Art Buds in Muirhouse

Art Buds in Muirhouse is a fun, free programme of outdoor creative learning for local early years and school-aged children in Muirhouse (postcodes EH4 4, EH4 5, EH5 1, EH5 2), developed by Art Buds Collective in partnership with North Edinburgh Arts.

We’re offering children the chance to attend weekly classes exploring art-making in nature with experienced artist educators. Our adventures will take place in Gyspsy Brae Recreation Ground (6-9 years) and the beautiful North Edinburgh Arts Garden (3-5 years). 

A walking bus from North Edinburgh Arts to and from Gypsy Brae is available for our older age groups. 

Free outdoor clothing and a healthy snack will be provided for all participants.

At Art Buds in Muirhouse you will:

  • Learn art-making skills
  • Develop problem solving skills, independence, confidence and respect for nature

  • Receive free outdoor clothing to keep you comfy while you make and explore
