Since our founding at the beginning of the Millennium, the following statements have been held as universal truths by Bigfoot Arts Education. - The arts have the power to unleash children’s extraordinary abilities and talents, so we must help them find their spark, and the sooner, the better. - All forms of the arts are valid – from theatre to filmmaking, painting to dance, music to yoga – All of which Bigfoot provides in abundance! - Children must be given the space to freely express themselves without the fear of judgement. - The best learning results are achieved by making learning seriously fun and play-full."Bigfoot is not just the largest arts education organisation in the UK; we are a nationwide creative arts movement! Each week our Bigfooters – the crème de la crème of arts facilitators – challenge 35,000+ children to be courageous learners."
