Is there a way to batch move one sub folder into another for over 200 folders?

I have a root folder C:\Users\username\Desktop\FolderStructure_New that contains 215 folders. Each folder is named for a SKU. In each folder, there is a folder for the revision level. Each revision folder contains a folder titled "Art files" and a folder that is a collect from Adobe InDesign, titled as "[Revision-name] Folder" (see below for example). Most of the files share the prefix "PC-", but a portion have the prefix "40-".

The folder structure is like this:

    |   \---40-1234-24G
    |       +---40-1234-24G Folder
    |       |   +---Document fonts
    |       |   \---Links
    |       \---Art files
    |   \---PC-5678-24J
    |       +---Art files
    |       \---PC-5678-24J Folder
    |           +---Document fonts
    |           \---Links

What I need to do is move each "[Revision name] Folder" into it's corresponding "Art files" folder. I would love to be able to do this with some sort of batch processing. Also, if it's possible to make the process work on more than one directory (which will also be on my desktop), that would be awesome.

Any help would be immensely appreciated!
