The Amazing Art Cart is run by me, Dawn East, mum of two kids, wife of a set builder, Edinburgh born now all living by the sea in hove.
My story began with a degree in graphic design followed by 5 years working in London as a creative producer for the likes of the London Design Festival, Grazia and Elle Magazine. In 2009 my son Albert was born and he rocked my world in the best way possible. The more time I spent with kids the more I loved being around them so I quit the office life and started looking after them full time. a couple of kids doing some art around my kitchen table started turning into lots of kids creating and making together and I started feeling as though it could be something.
I'd seen art carts around but loved the idea of something more mobile that could travel beyond the walls of a gallery or museum. I drew some pictures, my very kind husband built it, my son named it and the amazing art cart became a reality. Its small enough so that I can run workshops almost anywhere and I've been lucky enough to have worked with some wonderful people.
I'm passionate about the future generation and whether its at a private event, in a field or in the classroom I love giving kids (and parents) the opportunity to be creative.
