Welcome Aboard The Arts Bus!
Kids, art, creativity, innovation and FUN! This is what Arts Bus is all about! On the road since 2010, Arts Bus , a traveling art studio, music space and free library, engages children, ages 1-14, in the creative process through free arts education. When a child (or adult, as Arts Bus welcomes families and child care providers too!), comes aboard the bus they will find a plethora of exciting, innovative activities prepared for them to enjoy: ceramics, music and movement, painting, visual arts, writing and storytelling, paper arts, theater and drama, clowning and mime. . .the list goes on, limited only by the boundless imaginations of our artists and the children themselves. There is never a charge to participants to come on board the bus, and Arts Bus funds its programming through local donations, grants and fundraisers.
