Join us for our Monster Mayhem festival where we will be releasing new content throughout May.
Artburst is not -for-profit organisation set up in 2006 and we’ve won local and national awards! Our sessions increase confidence, communication skills and pride in creative achievements for children & families. We deliver workshops for schools, children’s centres, community centres and museums – including the London Transport Museum. We’re Makaton approved – so you can have fun with signing as well as singing, movement and art.
To help in COVID-19 while we’re all at home, staying safe, we’re doing some online sessions to keep us happy and healthy by singing, dancing, creating and having fun while we learn!
We want to be able to provide these for families from all backgrounds and circumstances.
If you have the resources to help by making a donation to enable us to continue these sessions for everyone, including those who are struggling financially you can make a donation here. Thank you.
Since March 2020 we have changed the way we work to integrate online creative education resources.
We are very grateful to the The National Lottery Community Fund, distributed by City Bridge Trust through the London Community Response Fund which between September 2020 and March 2021 helped us to change the way we work to reach children and families and schools through online creative education from their homes and classrooms during social distancing.
From September 2020 – August 2021 Artburst is delivering a project for children with Speech Language and Communications Needs through a grant from The Communication Trust Consortium Grants programme (funded by The Rayners Special Educational Trust).
We will resume our face-to-face activities when we can, while continuing to deliver online content for children and families everywhere to access our fun and creative activities.
We are planning our Spring and Summer online festivals and we hope to bring news of summer holiday opportunities soon.
I couldn’t believe it was possible to achieve that in only two weeks.Parent
Charterhouse Museum SEND project
Teacher from Ickburgh school:
"My students were expertly facilitated to explore these creatively, and on their terms, through making and creating with a variety of tactile, textured and sensory materials. It enabled them to explore and develop their creativity. Approaching the past – places and artefacts that speak of it – in the way that Artburst did with my class, brings life and meaning to it for them. Thanks guys – it was a wonderful project. "
My daughter has been asking since the beginning of the week 'When are we going to Artburst' She clearly enjoys it a lot! Thanks all!Parent
