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.

Here are a few easy ways to support the bus!

“The Barn” Mobile station near exit 4 in Randolph, VT is donating 1 penny from every gallon of gas sold in September to the Arts Bus. So fill up your tank for a good cause!

 On September 30th, the Arts Bus will be having its first ever Cow Plop Contest.  Ticket prices are $10 (service fees apply online).  Each ticket buys a grid square.  The owner of the square with the winning plop, receives half of all ticket sales.  The Arts Bus receives the other half of ticket sales for fall programming.  September 30 at Silloway Farm, 1089 Silloway Rd., Randolph Center, VT join us from 9-10 for a free art activity.  At 10:00, Cindy the cow will grace the winning square with a plop.  Click here to order Cow Plop tickets. Thank you for your support!
