Welcome to Budding Artists! 

I’m Kirsty McIntosh – a passionate art teacher and heart-centred business owner. I began Budding Artists in 2010 as a way of inspiring children to enjoy creating art and expressing themselves. 

Nothing brings me more joy than helping kids experiment with colourful materials to create new artworks! I love helping them find their creative flow and have fun making art and craft. I’ve hosted art classes in Midland, Hazelmere and Koongamia; run workshops at many local festivals, including Fringe at Sunset Veranda, Scarborough; and toured the south west of WA, presenting fun craft activities for kids at Fairbridge and Nannup Music Festivals.

With a background in Anthropology and Early Childhood Education; and drawing from my 20 years of kids’ art teaching experience, I can’t wait to share my treasure trove of creative projects with your children, in class and at home :).
