Bus and Bird Arts

Bus and Bird Arts website is almost ready to go live. There’s just a few tweaks and images to sort, exciting times! I remember how thrilled I was when I started writing this blog four years ago. In the meantime, here’s some information about what Bus and Bird Arts is all about.

What is Bus and Bird Arts?
Bus and Bird Arts champions learning and creativity within communities by providing tailor made creative experiences for a broad spectrum of learners. High quality CPD courses, workshops & community arts* initiatives are run by freelance Artist Educator, Clare Taylor. An experienced Community Co-ordinator, Clare has designed & delivered bespoke creative learning sessions for a broad spectrum of learners from pre-school & school age children through to PGCE students & professional adults. Bus and Bird Arts focuses on three core areas: Education & Training, Community and Health & Wellbeing.


Where does the name come from? 
Although I am already work under the banner of Curious Clare for design and blogging purposes, I wanted to move away from my business being based around just one person. The bus reflects the idea of a mobile arts service and it is an image that I have used before as I love old route master buses (see my wedding post for starters!). Ideally, I would love to run my business from a bright red double decker bus (although I don’t think my neighbours would be too happy about that). In addition, I have used the robin throughout the branding of Curious Clare and I wanted a little part of Curious Clare carried through to the new business. Hence the name, Bus and Bird Arts.
