Make The Paint Dance


Make The Paint Dance is an award-winning not for profit organisation founded in 2017 by Megan Jowett. The central aim of the company is to increase accessibility to the arts through providing cross curricular music and art workshops in schools as well as creative play sessions for babies and toddlers.

Our vision is based on using music and art as vehicles for creativity, discussion, confidence building, team work and independence. At the heart is a commitment to improving well-being and developing creativity in our workshop participants.

We are committed to providing opportunities for children and their families to hear some of the greatest and most challenging music and see some of the most influential and thought provoking artwork ever created. 

At MTPD we want to pass on our passion and love for the arts and provide an accessible programme which inspires the next generation to listen, see, think and create.

What families say about us...

  • Really enjoy our Friday morning sessions with Make the Paint Dance. Joining the COVID outbreak and working from home with no nursery care these sessions have ensured I have quality active time with my son at home. I love the songs and often song them outside of the session.
