Drums are not always used for creating only music, they have also been used throughout history for communication purposes. From Peru to Siberia, they have been a part of ceremonies, ritual healing practices and creative expression. The Artbeat for Humanity project traces the thousand-year-old tradition of drum painting, present throughout cultures around the globe. Our unique approach of creating imagery is inclusive and suitable for expert creatives and novices alike. Create your own images to transfer onto a ready to go painting surface-your Art Beat drum!
"Artbeat Drums can be used with a variety of people of all ages and walks of life, clinically, educationally and recreationally.
