A new at home art program, developed by the Koffler Centre of the Arts. Click here to learn more.

We miss seeing you and making art together in the gallery, but just because we can’t connect in person doesn’t mean we can’t keep sharing! Art Bursts: Prompts for Creativityin Isolation is a project created by the Koffler Gallery Education Team to encourage young artists and their families to keep creating and connecting from home. 

The prompts have been inspired by artists like Yoko Ono, Corita Kent, and Lynda Barry, artists who draw inspiration from the everyday to create new meaning and poetry out of the ordinary. These prompts can be interpreted freely (there is no right or wrong answer!) and completed using any materials or media you have on hand – paper, pencil, crayon, marker, magazine collage, paint, photo, digital, or anything else you can think of. Now is a great time to try out something new to you – if you’ve been mastering your skills in drawing with pencil, you might try your hand at watercolour, photography, or sculpture.

Here’s how you can participate in the project with us:

Step 1: Visit @kofflerarts or to access and complete the weekly prompt. New prompts will be posted as stories every Wednesday. Prompts from previous weeks will be accessible as highlighted stories on both accounts (prompts are also included below).

Step 2: Send your completed prompts to with your first name, age, and the title of your work, and we will post them to

Step 3: Follow to see what other artists are submitting.

We can’t wait to see what you create!
