Arty Grrrls was launched in 2018 with the ambition of supporting creative young women in Rotherham, offering them a safe space to come, learn new skills and be creative. The group developed with time, welcoming a number of different girls from a range of ages, and becoming slightly more uniform in its format, running over terms rather than fortnightly. There was also provision made available to recruit two female artists to come and run sessions, including a member of Girl Gang Sheffield.

Due to a lack of attendees the project came to an unofficial close in the summer of 2019, however the passion behind arty grrrls and support from individuals and the wider sector as a whole meant that it has led to other opportunities and partnership working.
